Digital Humanities (Certificate)
The Certificate in Digital Humanities is a designed for students from any discipline to construct a curriculum in digital humanities training and project work. The certificate is currently coordinated in the English department with participation across CHASS and other colleges.
The Graduate Certificate consists of a student-proposed curriculum of four 3-credit courses which must collectively satisfy the program’s three requirements: contexts, training, and applications. In consultation with the coordinator, students can propose their own tracks through the certificate drawing from a broad array of approved courses at NC State as well as at UNC and Duke, as part of the Triangle Digital Humanities Network. Rather than insisting on a prescriptive definition and preset curriculum for “digital humanities,” this certificate program encourages students to adapt course offerings in digital humanities or digital media to their own evolving research and professional interests in any variety of fields.
To qualify for admission to the Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities, students must be enrolled in, or have completed, a Master’s or PhD program at an accredited university. Applicants can be either non-degree or degree students. Degree students must have at the time of application a 3.00 grade point average in their graduate degree program. Non-degree students must have a final grade point average that is at least 3.00. Current degree students in English or CRDM may include no more than six (6) credits from the Certificate program in their degree program. Current degree students in History can apply up to nine (9) towards a doctorate. Students seeking the certificate from other programs must consult with those graduate coordinators to confirm allowed credits toward degree. The certificate will accept up to three hours of transfer credit from courses included in the curriculum. All GCP requirements must be completed within three (3) calendar years beginning on the date the student commences applicable courses.
