About the Programme

The MA/MSc provides research-led teaching delivered by leading scholars.

In Term 1 and 2, students take core modules, plus a further set from a wide range of options available from various departments and faculties at UCL. In addition, students write an original dissertation on a topic of their choice in consultation with their supervisor, and undertake a work placement at a related institution where they can apply taught aspects of the programme in Term 3. This allows students who have a background in the humanities to acquire necessarily skills in digital technologies, and also makes it possible for those with a technical background to become informed about scholarly methods in the humanities.
