What will I learn?

The Master of Digital Humanities and Public Culture (Advanced) enables students to develop high level skills in digital literacy and applied humanities. A flexible structure allows students to learn emerging digital research methods, advanced critical thinking and data analysis. Students gain an understanding of how academic research is applied in broader society and are supported to develop communication skills across traditional and digital platforms aimed at both the academic and public spheres. Students will collaborate with researchers from across the ANU, and have the opportunity to engage with the national cultural institutions, the public and government sector, and international organisations in Canberra.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the skills and knowledge to:

apply theoretical and methodological frameworks and research techniques critically in order to understand the key issues raised by the digital humanities and public humanities, and by the use of information technologies in the arts and social sciences more generally.

demonstrate effective communication and independent conceptual thinking and research skills relevant to the field.

develop a strong and critical understanding of interdisciplinary methodologies and theoretical debates and an ability to apply these in professional contexts.

demonstrate a critical understanding of, and engagement with, the historical, political, institutional and cultural frameworks for contemporary practices in digital and public humanities in Australia and internationally.

develop practical skills in areas such as writing and digital communication for diverse contexts, humanities computing, and information literacy
