Graduate Certificates and Programs in Digital Humanities

Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities - University of Victoria

The Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities meets the current and growing need for training in digital humanities tools and techniques among graduate students, academics, librarians, and those in extra-academic sectors. It offers world-class training in Digital Humanities methods, approaches, and content through courses at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI), the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Victoria, and the DHSI's partner entities: Humanities Intensive Learning and Teaching (HILT), Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS), and the Digital Humanities programme at Universitat Leipzig. Uniquely, this program allows the hundreds of those who come to Victoria each summer for DHSI to receive graduate university credit for the work they've done while at DHSI. The Certificate is proudly offered through the English Department at the University of Victoria, in cooperation with the DHSI. -website description
