Digital Studies at UT represent the areas of study where humanities disciplines and studies in information engage digital tools, archives, artifacts, and information technologies. The emergent field of digital studies transforms research and learning environments and systems of cultural preservation by leveraging institutional differences through collaborations that cross traditional institutional units and hierarchies.
This certificate is designed to introduce students to the ideas, materials and computational tools that underlie this field. It is open to students of all majors. Students take eighteen credit hours from a selection of courses taught in different departments and colleges at UT Austin. The DH Certificate will harness students’ engagement with and excitement about digital technologies and media and put that energy to use in a flexible curriculum that requires both skills acquisition and critical inquiry.
