The UCL Centre for Digital Humanities brings together people from a wide range of disciplines to develop research and teaching in a vibrant multidisciplinary field.
Digital humanities research takes place at the intersection of digital technologies and humanities. It aims to produce applications and models that make possible new kinds of research, both in the humanities disciplines and in computer science and its allied technologies. It also studies the impact of these techniques on cultural heritage, memory institutions, libraries, archives and digital culture.
The Centre for Digital Humanities is able to capitalise on UCL's world-leading strength in information studies, computing science, and the arts and humanities. It brings together work being done in many different departments and centres, including the university's library services, museums and collections. The centre's location in central London, close to the British Museum and British Library, also makes it an ideal base for collaboration with organisations outside UCL, such as museums, galleries, libraries and archives.
We offer a research-led MA/MSc in Digital Humanities, allowing both students who have a background in the humanities to acquire necessarily skills in digital technologies, and for those with a technical background to become informed about scholarly methods in the humanities. We offer many of the options from the MA/MSc as short courses. We also encourage those interested in pursuing a PhD in Digital Humanities to contact us.

UCL Digital Humanities network.
