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.

Program Requirements

To complete the certificate, students must take 16 credit hours in the DIGI rubric, including a capstone experience, usually a research-intensive digital humanities project of their own devising.

DH Issues:  Choose at least 1 of the following core courses taught on a rotating basis

DIGI 2000: GIS for Humanists

DIGI 3300: Issues in Information
