Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities
As the emergence and use of digital technologies in scholarly research and pedagogical settings continues to burgeon, new curricular programming is offered to graduate students in the Department of Art History to receive certification in digital humanities. Launched in 2011 by the UCLA Center for Digital Humanities, the graduate certificate in Digital Humanities prepares students to work in the new environment of scholarly research by providing them with knowledge about the tools, methods, and theoretical issues central to the emerging field. These include text analysis, data mining, visualization, modeling and simulation, geo-spatial and mapping, multi-media storytelling, information design, network analysis, interface design.
The certificate emphasizes principles and concepts that will transfer across software programs and platforms, with the conviction that digital technologies will continue to emerge, but that certain intellectual, technical, and research design principles will remain central to this rapidly changing field. Through a designed course of study, students ultimately produce a Digital Research Portfolio demonstrating the development of their scholarship.
