Short Courses at UCLDH
Many of the modules that are taught within the Department of Information Studies as part of the MA/MSc in Digital Humanities work as stand alone short courses for those wishing to update their professional skills in a particular area.
The modules are taught over the course of one term, and usually comprise of 30 taught hours of lectures and practicals, followed by a coursework assessment or exam (which is optional for short course students). If the assessment is completed successfully, the module credit can count towards a future Master's degree. The fees for short courses are reasonable, and timetables in the Department of Information Studies are geared towards part time students, which means the module is usually run for one morning or afternoon a week, over a ten week term.
Modules currently offered as Short Courses include:
Acceptance onto the module is by agreement by the tutor. Please contact the module tutor for further information.
Many other modules from taught programmes offered by UCL Department of Information Studies (DIS) are available as short courses. Details about fees and how to apply are also available on that page.
