Digital Humanities Research Methods

7.5 credits

The aim of this course is to learn about digital research methods to address research questions from the humanities. The course gives an overview of the impact of digitisation on the way research is conducted, an insight into a range of the different digital methods, as well as an awareness of difficulties related to the methodology. In the final project of the course, one has the option to focus on digital methods which are commonly applied in one's major discipline (e.g., from bachelor programme), while also being encouraged to complement them with those less commonly used in the discipline at hand. The aim of the latter is for the student to develop new perspectives on the subject tradition, in the spirit of digital humanities as a field, and thus to stimulate new and creative thinking. The digital methods are chosen from current research methods in the subject.

Distance – study where you are

Perhaps you would like to study in the Swedish mountains, in a big city, or at home close to family? Many of our programmes and courses are offered in distance format.

Studying at a distance can be done in different ways, either entirely without physical gatherings or with only a few gatherings on campus or at one of our learning centres. The common denominator is that a large part of your studies takes place online. You communicate with the teacher and other students with the help of a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures and online meetings.

The benefit of distance studies is the flexibility, something that is valuable if you want to be free to decide when and where you want to study. Some compulsory elements on you course or programme may take place during office hours, even though they are online.
