        Subject: Applications now open for MPhil in Digital Humanities and Culture, TCD - Deadline extended

***Deadline now extended to 30th April 2013****

Applications are now being accepted for an MPhil in Digital Humanities and Culture at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland’s oldest University.

Digital Humanities is an emerging and dynamic field of study that seeks to apply innovative technologies and methods to the study of the age-old disciplines of the humanities. This Masters is for students from any area of the humanities (including languages, literature, history, art history, linguistics, drama, film, and music) or Computer Science who would like to learn how technology mediates our study of these fields, as well as how technology is changing the way we create new artistic and scholarly works.

Students will be exposed to a wide variety of theories, tools, and methods, from digital scholarly editing to datamining, and from visualisations to XML. Some modules will be theory-based (such as Theory and Practice of Digital Humanities’ and ‘Cyberculture’), others will be hands-on and have, in addition to theory, a lab component (including Digital Scholarly Editing’ and ‘Web Technologies’)

The MPhil can be completed in one year full time or two years part time. Taught modules include  ‘Theory and Practice of Digital Humanities’, ‘Cyberculture’, ‘Web Technologies,’ ‘Digital Scholarly Editing’ Corpus Linguistics,  ‘From Metadata to Linked Data’, ‘Visualising the Past’. In the second semester students will have the opportunity to participate in a practical internship at a cultural institution, with an ongoing digital humanities project, or with a digital library initiative.

This MPhil in Digital Humanities and Culture is in its second year. It builds on TCD’s four-hundred-year-old tradition of scholarship as one of the great universities of the world. TCD provides a liberal environment where independence of thought is highly valued and where staff and students are nurtured as individuals and are encouraged to achieve their full potential.

The MPhil in DHC has qualified for Skills Conversion Funding sponsored by the Higher Education Authority under the National Development Plan. Under this scheme EU students fees were set at €2750 for both full and part time options for the 2012-13 academic year.
