Dear colleagues,

We'd very much appreciate your help in getting this announcement to prospective students interested in graduate studies in Digital Humanities.

Master of Arts in Digital Humanities at McGill University (Montreal, Canada)

We are delighted to announce that McGill University is offering a new MA in Digital Humanities, beginning fall 2016. The program is grounded in the computational study of art, culture, history, society, and technology. It brings together different fields of inquiry under a larger methodological domain, one that centres on the application of computational analysis toward the understanding of human culture. Whether it is the study of art, architecture, film, television, history, language, literature, media, music, or politics, what characterizes the MA in Digital Humanities is a focus on learning various methods for the computational study of these phenomena as well as a critical look at the effects of computing on scholarship.

The program emphasizes course work in the areas of cultural theory, cultural analytics, and data visualization and culminates in a thesis and/or digital project. Graduates will have engaged in theoretical debates about different forms of cultural expression (film, literature, music, etc.) as well as practical and hands-on debates about applying and developing computational tools to better understand these phenomena. Graduates will be at home in and critically engaged with the increasingly digital nature of economic, social, and cultural life. Prior knowledge of programming languages is essential and should be well-described in the application.
