The objective of this program is to provide a panoramic view of the different areas encompassed in the field of Digital Humanities: digital edition of text and image for literary and artistic purposes; use and design of databases for humanities; familiarity with digital tools for virtual, web-based cultural projects; and tools devoted to data mining and visualization. All of this will enable the students to enhance their academic training and to open up to new prospects for academic research and the job market, where the demand for humanists with technological knowledge is growing every day.


There are no academic pre-requisites to enroll in this program. It is mainly targeted to:

  • Students trained in different fields within the humanities who want to gain additional technological skill to face the new challenges of today’s digital culture, to enhance their training, and to open up to new prospects for academic research and job market access.
  • Researchers currently working on scientific projects in different humanities disciplines (literature, art, history, philosophy…) who want to get up-to-date with the existing technological tools and perspectives in order to apply them to their actual projects.
  • Practitioners in the field of humanities (mainly GLAM: Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) who wish to reinforce their digital skills to be better able to apply them to their own work.
  • People in other disciplines who are interested in learning more about Digital Humanities while approaching an interdisciplinary, buzzing work methodology.


The teaching methodology will be mainly face-to-face, but it will also be possible to attend the course online since it will be streamed password-restricted for enrolled students. Chat room service, access to the virtual campus with all the course materials, and forums to interact with other students and teachers (who may also be contacted via email during and after the course) will also be available.
