Programme Structure

Candidates will complete core, training and career development modules,
including main modules shared across the consortium and others
institutionally-based. The overall aim of the taught modules are threefold:
1) to introduce students to the history and theoretical issues in digital
arts/humanities; 2) to provide the skills needed to apply advanced
computational and information management paradigms to humanities/arts
research; 3) to provide an enabling framework for students to develop
generic and transferable skills to carry out their final research

Year 1 of the four-year programme includes core and optional graduate
education modules delivered in Cork, Dublin, Galway and Maynooth. These
modules provide a grounding in essential research skills and transferable
skills together with access to specialist topics. In years 2 and 3 work on
PhD research projects is supplemented with access to elective modules. Year
3 features practical placements in industry, academic research environments
or cultural institutions.

University College Cork has a strong track record in Digital Humanities and
has been a pioneer in the development of digital tools for language study
and historiography. The College is strong in all disciplines of the
Humanities, with a particular concentration on Irish and European studies.
The Digital Arts and Humanities program currently has 46 students from
around the globe, studying topics ranging from Renaissance networking to
eighteenth-century country houses, from modern performance art to Irish
diaspora music performers in the USA and their stories.
