Make Your Digital Methods Training Official
From fine arts to digital poetics, from set design to digital heritage work, from choreography to topic modeling, digitally-inflected arts & humanities endeavors permeate the academy and the world around it. The Digital Arts & Humanities certificate and minor programs bring these digital methods to bear in a credential that signals students’ competencies and expertise to potential academic (teacher, lecturer, professor, librarian) and non-academic (administrator, scholar in digital humanities centers, libraries, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions) employers. Our certificate and minor align arts & humanities graduate training at IU with an increasing emphasis on public scholarship and put graduate students in dialogue with the broader public via interdisciplinary digital methods and the enhanced accessibility afforded by digital scholarship and creative activity.
The minor indicates mastery of the theories, methods, and tools of scholarship and practice pertinent to blending digital methods with arts & humanities academic research and creative activities. The certificate takes that mastery one step further and provides an advanced credential based on the successful completion of a peer-reviewed project with a significant hands-on digital-methods component.
