DH Programs

The following institutions have DH MA programs. (For more details, see Miriam Posner’s list).

  • King’s College London
  • Loyola University Chicago
  • University of Alberta
  • University College London
  • University College Cork

Tanya Clement has collected a list of Digital Humanities Inflected Undergraduate Programs as of 2009 with additions in the comments. This post also has useful links to discussions about DH education.

The Zotero group “Digital Humanities Education,” launched by Lisa Spiro, is collaboratively building a library that “includes syllabi and curriculum planning documents, as well as articles about open education, networked pedagogies, and more.” This will be an invaluable resource for the DH community, and much more comprehensive than what we offer here.

DH-related syllabi

The number of DH courses has grown exponentially in recent semesters. Instead of updating individual syllabus links, we are keeping the previous list below, and directing researchers instead to collections like these.

Professional Development

There is an emerging push for DH courses aimed at providing skills training for those who are already working in the field, or would like to join it. The skills that should be required of DHers, though, is a topic of some contention.
