Overview

The curriculum takes a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to manageming digital information and is designed to support a wide range of career paths, espeicially involving libraries, museums, archives, records management, and data curation. DigIn also offers a path for those with undergraduate degrees who are interested in digitial collections but who may not yet be ready to commit to a full degree program. The certificate consists of six 14-week graduate-level courses to be taken within three years. Students can begin the program in the Summer, Fall or Spring semesters each year.

The Digital Information Management degree offered by the University of Arizona provides students with the theoretical knowledge, conceptual frameworks and practical skills required to create, maintain and curate collections of digital information in libraries, archives and records management departments.
