About Us

The Digital Humanities program is the curricular arm of DH at UCLA, offering a certificate for graduate students and a minor for undergrads.

Over the last decade, humanistic research and teaching has changed. Equipped with digital technology, scholars are rethinking research, publication, and pedagogy.

The Digital Humanities program prepares students to work in this new environment, providing them with knowledge about the tools, methods, and theoretical issues central to the emerging field. Students in the DH program learn about text analysis, data mining, visualization, modeling and simulation, geospatial analysis and mapping, multi-media storytelling, information design, network analysis, interface design, and mark-up, and they also receive the training they need to apply these tools to humanistic questions.

We offer both a minor (for undergraduates) and a certificate (for graduate students).
