EU-CONEXUS DHJM is a project for the creation of a European Master’s degree in the innovative and emerging discipline of Digital Humanities. Digital Humanities is a field of research, teaching and engineering that lies at the intersection of the arts, humanities and social sciences with the support of computer science. It will be the first master in Digital Humanities at the same time on a European scale and in a European university.
The principal aim of EU-CONEXUS DHJM is to design the main lines of this master’s level training programme in Digital Humanities that will be provided on a European scale, such as its international curriculum (taught entirely in English, shared teaching between different European partners, students’ mobility in different countries of the alliance EU-CONEXUS, multicultural dimension), its administrative framework (administrative, financial environment, joint agreements) and its attractiveness academic environment (complementary activities such as orientation and reunion weeks on-site, a summer seminar with visits of museums and heritage institutions, field trips).
It is intended and suitable for both students having a background in the humanities and the arts, as much as for those having a background in digital technologies. Therefore, the programme will be open to applicants having a Bachelor’s in the Arts and Humanities disciplines, as well as to those having a Bachelor’s in computer sciences.
The mission of the JMPDH is to provide the students with knowledge, skills and abilities to explain, interpret and examine culture, cultural heritage, language, and other humanities’ research resources through a digital lens, by the use of IT, and to prepare students for a range of disciplines within scientific, cultural and creative sectors, both in private and public institutions.
In the scientific sector, the graduates will be able to participate in the digital transformation of the fields of humanities.
In the cultural sector, they will be able to support the activities of structuring data, archives, digital communication and dissemination of cultural heritage.
In the contemporary field of the creative industry, the graduates will acquire the knowledge and skills sufficient to successfully merge the creative sector and scientific fields in DH, and to produce innovative cultural objects, and manage projects whose aim is the digital transformation of the cultural sector and heritage institutions.
