The M.A. in Digital Studies is a stepping stone to a number of different careers that require a combination of computing skills and training in the humanities—training that fosters much-needed skills in writing and critical thinking. Graduates of this program would be eligible for non-academic jobs in software development or software-related marketing, communications, and technical writing; they may pursue doctoral studies in order to apply their computational skills to research and teaching in the humanities; or they may take on an academic support role in digital humanities at a college, university, or cultural institution.
