Some weeks ago our PhD Candidate Amalia Juneström went to Växjö on Mötesplats Profession-Forskning (Meeting Place Profession-Research) to inform about the Master Programme in Digital Humanities. The idea behind the arrangement is putting researchers from different domains in contact with professionals working in libraries but also to invite students to learn more about research and professional life.

We saw a conference day with this mixed approach as a great opportunity to reach several groups that may have use of the digital humanities programme. One group is for example professionals working with cultural heritage or information and with an interest to develop their competence towards digital humanities. Another group is students in library science that are curious of a carrier within the broad spectra of digital humanities.

The broadness of employments or research where skills in digital humanities are needed makes nearly any study background or working experience of use in studies in the digital humanities. With this in consideration, the master programme is designed to be flexible so that you can tailor it according to your needs and interests. Students based in the humanities can choose to take the technical oriented courses offered in the programme, for example about databases or digital presentation and visualization. On the other hand, if you find that you need to complete your competence in the humanities area, you can select courses at the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History or Department of Art History. With this flexibility we want to offer each student the best opportunity to build on already existing competences and experiences and develop the knowledge and skills that brings you closer to your career goals.

Any further questions on how the programme in Digital Humanities can help you to reach your visions in your professional career? Contact our study counselor at the Department of ALM
