The University of Chicago’s M.A. in Digital Studies of Language, Culture, and History is a one-year (12-month) program intended for full-time students who have a B.A. in the humanities, arts, or history. A background in computing or mathematics beyond the high school level is not required. A seven-course minor program is also offered to undergraduate students in the College.
The Digital Studies curriculum is designed to develop not only technical programming skills, but a deeper understanding of the complexities and cultural implications of technology across a broad range of academic disciplines. Students in the Digital Studies program will discover how to use a wide variety of powerful software tools while learning how to think about computing from a humanistic perspective.
