Program Requirements

Students enrolled in the Collaborative Program in Digital Humanities must meet the requirements of their respective home units as well as those of the Collaborative Program. In most cases, the requirements of the Collaborative Program do not add to the number of credits students are required to accumulate by their home unit and the credit value of the degree remains the same.
Notes:

  • A list of Digital Humanities courses will be selected annually by the Digital Humanities Management committee in consultation with the participating programs for fulfillment of the 0.5 credit in Digital Humanities.
  • Where a collaborating program has its own practicum course, such as in Art History and Applied Linguistics, only a maximum of 1.0 credit in practica can be applied to degree requirements.
  • Students writing a thesis or major research paper must focus on a Digital Humanities topic. The proposed topic must be approved by the student's home unit and by the Digital Humanities Management Committee.  

The requirements of the collaborative program are:

1.  0.5 credit in DIGH 5000
2.  0.5 credit in Digital Humanities (DIGH 5011, DIGH 5012, or annually listed Digital Humanities course)
3.  0.0 credit in DIGH 5800
