Digital humanities is an inter-disciplinary field of study that represents a bridge between the arts and humanities and information technology. It further stretches beyond academia, mainly through collaboration with the cultural heritage sector.
This two-year master programme in Master Programme in Digital Humanities from Linnaeus University is suitable for individuals who want to work with technology to devise creative solutions in a range of humanities application areas at cultural heritage institutions, public agencies, international organizations and private companies.
The programme prepares students for current and future jobs across public and private sectors including cultural heritage institutions, governmental institutions and companies providing related services. Additionally, the programme provides the foundation for doctoral studies.
To study on a distance education will give you different opportunities than on-campus teaching. It means that, to a large extent, you will be able to plan your studies yourself, both in terms of time and place.
However, keep in mind that most distance education includes a number of compulsory digital lectures and digital seminars during the weekdays. Some distance education also include compulsory get-togethers, for which you will have to travel to Växjö or Kalmar.
There are a number of different ways to be a distance student, the common denominator being that a large part of your study work is carried out on the web. You communicate with the teacher and your fellow students using a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures or video meetings using a web cam.
