U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Begins Offering Certificate in Digital Humanities
From The Daily Tar Heel:
After more than a year of collaboration and development, several UNC departments have introduced the Carolina Digital Humanities Initiative — a program that could potentially change the way students study the humanities.
CDHI will offer a graduate certificate program in digital humanities, which will give students a way to study the intersection of humanities and online information-sharing.[Clip]
As of this fall, UNC is one of the first universities to implement a graduate certificate program in digital humanities — thanks in part to a $1.39 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in June 2012.
UNC’s Digital Innovation Lab — created in 2011 by the College of Arts and Sciences — is partnering with CDHI to expand the presence of digital humanities on campus and to minimize barriers to access.
