Every day new forms of human knowledge are being digitized and converted into data. Knowing how to organize, visualize, and analyze textual, spatial, and qualitative data have become essential skills for those who seek to understand and to contribute to the body of human knowledge and expression.
The Advanced Certificate in Digital Humanities integrates the study of the liberal arts with the tools of computer science. The courses in the Advanced Certificate give students proficiency in Python, a popular programming language widely used in data visualization and analysis, in database tools essential for organizing and publishing large collections of digital materials, and in website design and development. All of our courses are project-based. There are no computer science prerequisites.
