    The degree will help you develop the analytical and practical skills you will need to understand and apply computing to the source materials and problems of the humanities. It comprises formal methods and techniques and the consequences and implications of applying them. We use a representative selection of case studies drawn from a number of disciplinary areas to exemplify analysis of typical problems and the combination of technical means needed to approach them successfully.

    Programme format and assessment
    Lectures on theoretical topics; demonstrations; practical classes and exercises. Two compulsory one-term modules, options to the value of 80 credits and a dissertation. Modules are assessed by coursework and/or examination.

    Programme modules for MA Digital Humanities 

    Computing in historical studies

    This module will begin with close attention to historiography and in particular its relation to humanities computing. You will examine numerical computation, statistical analysis and graphical representation , using text mark-up and analysis techniques, with a special emphasis on database design, construction and manipulation and information analysis.

    Methods and techniques of Humanities computing
    The module acquaints you with the standard ways in which the computer is applied to humanities data. You engage directly in modelling each problem by designing and implementing a digital representation of it, investigating how far it replaces the original and how new things can be done with the representation.

    Modes of publication
    This module covers publication in both old and new media, with attention to the technology and conventions of print publication as an essential background to intelligent use of techniques for online and interactive publication.
