Masters in Digital Humanities

imagesThe Masters in Digital Humanities at Maynooth University is designed as an introduction to this new and dynamic research area for students from across the disciplines. The Masters in Digital Humanities, which is delivered by An Foras Feasa: the Institute for Research in Irish Historical and Cultural Traditions,  in collaboration with faculty from across the university, is now in its fourth year, and we are now accepting applications for our fifth year.

You can explore the outline of the course and the modules we offer in the Modules tab. The deadline for applications is 30 June 2015. Applications made prior to 30 June will be decided on on a rolling basis.

90 ECTS is needed to complete the Masters. The course is comprised of the following elements:

  • Required Taught Modules: 20 ECTS*
  • Project and Dissertation: 30 ECTS
  • Elective Taught Modules: 40 ECTS
  • *This does not include the 10 ECTS allocated to the course in Structured Programming that is recommended for some students and which runs in late August through to early September before classes begin each year.

Students may apply to do the course full time or part time. Full time students compete the course in one year. Part time students will complete the course over a two year period. In year 1 students take 40 ECTS in taught modules (Structured Programming, Digital Humanities Theory and Practice, and 2 electives). In year 2, they take 20 ECTS in taught modules (the Practicum and one elective) and complete the dissertation.
