Digital Humanities is an important multidisciplinary field, undertaking research 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, computer science, and the arts and humanities. It brings together work being done in the many different departments and centres at UCL. Our location in central London, surrounded by the greatest concentration of libraries and professional bodies in Europe, also makes it an ideal base for collaboration with organisations outside UCL, such as museums, galleries, libraries and archives.

The MA/MSc programme, offered via UCL Department of Information Studies, is a new interdisciplinary degree exploring the intersection of digital technologies and culture.

We have a variety of PhD students who are undertaking research with us, and are interested in hearing from those who are considering undertaking PhD research in Digital Humanities. 

It is also possible to study individual modules from the MA/MSc programme as Short Courses such as:

which can contribute to professional development, and count towards the MA/MSc should it be pursued further.
