Digital Humanities teaching in spring 2021

The Department of Digital Humanities offers a MA study track and a minor study block in digital humanities that is open to all MA level students, and you can fit the DH studies into any MA degree at the University of Helsinki. An introductory Digital Humanities and Social Sciences BA level course is organized in spring.

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 modules do not require any previous programming skills, although we offer a separate track for those with more advanced computational experience. The course listings have been updated for the spring 2021. Welcome to explore Digital Humanities!
