Digital tools and resources are transforming the ways in which we research, interpret, and communicate. Be part of this change by enrolling in the new graduate online Digital Public Humanities Certificate created by the Department of History and Art History and the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University in partnership with Smithsonian Associates.
This one-year, 15-credit certificate program includes 3 online courses:
- Introduction to Digital Humanities (Fall 2015; 3 credits)
- Digital Public History (Spring 2016; 3 credits)
- Teaching Humanities in the Digital Age (Spring 2016; 3 credits)
Courses will introduce students interested in public history, museums, libraries, archives, education, and communications to ways in which they can incorporate digital public humanities skills and tools into their current or future practice. Students will learn research and presentation skills, including text mining, topic modeling, data visualization, and mapping. They will explore innovative ways to advance teaching and learning through digital tools while developing skills in digital curation, writing, and content strategy.
The program includes a 6-credit “virtual” summer internship with the Smithsonian Institution. The internship can be completed remotely.
