    The programme is particularly interesting for people with a background in humanities who are keen on learning how to apply digital methods to their own discipline of interest

    I have always had a broad interest. During my bachelor Communication Studies, I followed Media Studies courses and (web)programming courses from Information Science. I really enjoyed these courses. Furthermore, I have always been interested in philosophy.

    For me, the master Digital Humanities was a perfect choice because it covers all these topics of interest. The programme is particularly interesting for people with a background in humanities who are keen on learning how to apply digital methods to their own discipline of interest.

    As the program is fully taught in English and accessible for everyone with a bachelor’s degree in humanities, you meet people with different backgrounds from the Netherlands and from abroad. During classes it is interesting to see how students with a different background reflect on the topics of discussion.
