Slide1Come to the An Foras Feasa Open Day on Tuesday 14 April to find out more about studying Digital Humanities at Maynooth University.

Staff and students will be available on the day to talk to you about the MA in Digital Humanities and the PhD in Digital Arts and Humanities and lunch will be provided on the day.

Lecturers from modules on the programme will be happy to talk about teaching methods, module expectations and suchlike on the day – follow us @DHForasFeasa for updates. Or contact maapplications@forasfeasa.ie to talk more about the programme.

There are two AFF Taught Masters Bursaries available for the MA in Digital Humanities 2015-16: find out more about these here.

What students have to to say about the MA in Digital Humanities at MU:

“It sounds very technical and yes, it can be, but the friendly staff at An Foras Feasa (the first floor of the Iontas building) are accommodating and provide all the training and digital tools you need to work with. Nor does one need a history background, digital humanities is just that; studying humanities digitally. One can research digital literature, digital archaeology, digital feminism and much more. My advice is to consider the world that we will graduate into: a digital world, one that demands computer literacy and more. This course gave me those skills despite having never studied computer science before. The course is whatever you want it to be, as technical as you desire. You will emerge with desirable skills; I learned Java in three weeks at the start of college year – something I’d always wanted to do but never been able to; this Masters program made it happen. In brief, if you’re considering applying for a masters, give Digital Humanities in Maynooth a thought when you do.” (Neale Rooney, MA Class Rep. 2014).

 

Open Day Schedule will be posted shortly – all talks will take place in Room 1.37 on the first floor of the Iontas Building, North Campus
