Our Students

Our students enter into the MA in DH program from a variety of academic backgrounds, including literary studies, history, library and information science, and computer science. Their goals are both academic and professional. What they have in common is an interest in how the digital creates opportunities to shape and create structures of knowledge and information systems, and an investment in interdisciplinary scholarship. They gain a theoretical understanding of how technology shapes our lived experiences, combined with practical experiences of making and building. Our students move into careers in both the private and academic sector, including education, libraries, archives, museums, and PhD programs.
