Graduate Certificate in the Digital Humanities

The Graduate Certificate in the Digital Humanities meets a growing need for humanists trained in digital methods. Offered by the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), this certificate is designed to cultivate technical skills and their practical application within project-based Digital Humanities research. The program is relatively light in core course requirements and flexible as to content and timing, in order to best support the work students are doing in their home departments. You are expected to produce an e-portfolio project by the end of the program.

Admission is on a rolling basis and students may apply at any time.
