Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities

An interdisciplinary certificate in digital humanities at the graduate level was approved by the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska in April 2012. It is a twelve semester-hour program with courses taught by faculty from the departments of Anthropology, Art & Art History, Classics & Religious Studies, English, History, Modern Languages, and the University Libraries.

Check the Office of Graduate Studies, Digital Humanities Graduate Certificate Summary, or the Digital Humanities Certificate page for more information.

Independent Study

Independent study credit is offered for both undergraduate and graduate students relating to digital humanities. If you are interested in arranging an independant study, please consult the faculty member with whom you'd like to study.

Digital Humanities Incubator

The Incubator provides research consultations; project coaching and support; access to resources, including hardware, software, people, and materials; work space; project and professional development funding; and professionalizing opportunities. Incubator participants must be graduate students enrolled in a humanities degree program at UNL and are chosen by competitive application.

Incubator Fellows commit to developing a specific contribution to humanities scholarship that depends on digital methodologies for research and/or publication, using the Incubator to kickstart a new research project or to complete an ongoing project. Fellows also support the research of other Incubator Fellows through thoughtful dialogue, critical engagement, and knowledge exchange. In addition, Fellows commit to presenting their work to a public audience and to participating in training opportunities.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Liz Lorang with questions.
