Digital Humanities teaching continues in 2018-19

The Department of Digital Humanities offers a 30-credit study block in digital humanities that is open to all MA level students and you can fit DH studies into any MA degree at the University of Helsinki.

Humanist studying computational methods? It has been reported that the humanist with digital skills is given a welcome reception in the job market, so this might not be such a crazy idea after all. Additionally, research that incorporates digital humanities elements has an ever increasing prospect, and impact, in academia. The DIGIHUM module does not require any previous programming skills, although we offer a separate track for those with more advanced computational experience. For the academic year 2018-19 we have updated our course lists and designed the module so that the mandatory courses are simpler for students to follow. Welcome to explore Digital Humanities!

Introductory courses
