Who Should Apply The ideal candidate seeks engagement with digital humanities, digital art history, digital architectural history and digital archaeology, and conceptualizes digital visualization as a way of doing research. The program encourages applicants from across the humanities and social sciences, whether from established disciplines, such as history, archaeology, and art history, or emerging fields of study, such as spatial history, media arts & sciences, and cultural geography. The Computational Media track emphasizes the study of visualization technologies in the context of media and technology histories, cultural analytics, and new media forms of expression. Computational Media topics include the manufacture and dissemination of humanities data and its expression, the social and ethical considerations of digital cultural heritage interventions, and the aesthetic and rhetorical value of computational media forms. The ideal candidate for the Computational Media track seeks deeper understanding of the intersection of quantitative and qualitative modes of historical and cultural research, is actively engaged with hands-on computational media production, and is interested in productive cross-overs between arts and sciences communities. This MA track prepares students for further graduate study in digital humanities and computational media and for training for jobs in media, design, advertising, and technical industries, among others.
