Since its inception, the master's program in Digital Humanities has trained a number of professionals pursuing careers in such diverse fields as archives and libraries, software development, and corporate positions.  Others have gone on to prestigious doctoral programs. Our graduate program trains students broadly with a curriculum that is innovative for balancing theory and practice, teaching the best professional standards while preparing students for employment in multiple areas of digital humanities practice. Our program promotes an inclusive environment for textual studies and digital humanities training.

The variety of careers pursued by our digital humanists is illustrated by our alumni:
