Offered with support from the Willson Center for Humanities and the UGA Libraries, the certificate program in Digital Humanities is designed for undergraduates who want to explore the intersection of humanities and STEM disciplines. DIGI classes are meant to combine the humanist skills of deep cultural, textual, and historic study, with analytical methods and digital tools. Students will benefit from the application of subject specific knowledge to collaborative, hands-on projects and classes.
To complete the certificate, students must take seventeen credit hours in the DIGI rubric, including a capstone experience, usually a research-intensive digital humanities project of their own devising.
