Digital Humanities (DH) are in action where the humanities and computer science intersect. DH is divided into many areas – also called digital liberal arts – and has various methods. One important aspect is the quantitative indexing of texts to make statistical statements about them, for instance, about a genre. The crafting of digital editions is also a DH specialty area.
The Master’s in Digital Humanities offers Bachelor of Arts graduates specialization in a liberal arts subject that combines a basic technical education with intensive education in the humanities.
Do you enjoy putting newly-learned computer applications to the test immediately? Can you tolerate high stress levels, even when it means working out a solution by trial and error? Can you tolerate making the occasional application errors? Can you envision working in an area still lacking a firm structure and just getting established? Are you open to other subject areas and their respective disciplinary cultures? Then you should definitely apply for the Master’s program in Digital Humanities at the University of Stuttgart.
