Maynooth University offers two complementary postgraduate degrees in Digital Humanities and Heritage, providing opportunities for GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums) professionals to upskill in new technologies, methods, and theoretical approaches in transforming, preserving, and expanding the audience for cultural heritage.
The Master of Arts in Digital Humanities, the oldest in Ireland, and one of the oldest in the world, combines the theory and practice of humanities research and teaching with transformative digital technologies. It provides students with the opportunity of extending their disciplinary knowledge into new modalities, including data analytics, digitisation and curation, 2D and 3D modelling. The Masters is taught within a praxis-based environment with opportunities to work on cutting-edge Irish & international projects.
The Master of Science in Spatial eHumanities is offered jointly with The National Centre for Geocomputation. It takes an interdisciplinary approach to focus on spatial and temporal concepts, methods, and tools in the development of computational and visual frameworks from which to explore the past and better understand our present. It is the only programme in Europe combining geocomputation, cultural heritage, archaeology, design, and humanities/arts research, providing both a historical background and theoretical grounding to the field.
Degrees are taught in state-of-the-art facilities and students have access to the latest hardware and software. Students may opt to exit the degree without completing the thesis and receive a Postgraduate Diploma.
