Qualifications

Overview

Digital Humanities (DIGI), enables students to develop knowledge of digital technologies, and their role in society and culture.

Students will learn to apply digital tools and methods in their studies, and develop a critical understanding of the possibilities and limitations of the digital world and our knowledge economy (including ethical issues related to information technology). Using digital tools in the study of humanities and social science prepares students to think critically about technology in society broadly, and offers essential skills for success in today’s digital workplace.

Note: The name change from 'Digital Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities' is subject to Universities New Zealand CUAP approval, due December 2018.
