The M.A. in Digital Humanities program at The City University of New York cultivates both the practical skills and the humanistic knowledge needed to work on digital humanities-related projects in universities, libraries, museums, and non-profit cultural organizations.


In the M.A. in Digital Humanities program at The City University of New York, students from a variety of academic backgrounds such as history, English, art, computer science, philosophy, and music create digital research projects to explore the ethical, social, and political issues relevant to local and global communities.


Our curriculum introduces students to fundamental principles and methods of the digital humanities and includes specialization in one of three areas: digital textuality, data visualization and mapping, and digital pedagogy. Upon graduation, students will be prepared to enter the job market, work in the private and public sector, or be prepared for doctoral studies in a variety of academic areas.

What you'll learn

In our program, students learn to think critically about digital platforms as they begin to use them. Our students gain programming skills in the context of their digital projects, with the support of a large community of fellow practitioners. The program includes an optional internship course that offers valuable experience in applying DH skills in a professional context. Throughout their coursework, students balance critical study of technology with substantive study of humanities subjects.
