Graduate Studies in Digital Humanities



Northeastern University is a leader in the emerging field of Digital Humanities. Home to the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks as well as the Digital Scholarship Group housed in the Northeastern University Snell Library, we offer many opportunities for graduate student to pursue DH work, both in classes and as team members working on cutting-edge research projects led by award-winning scholars in the field. Graduate students (Master’s and doctoral) may pursue a Certificate in Digital Humanities, through a program designed to foster interdisciplinary research in the humanities using digital technologies. Interested graduate students may apply to serve as Fellows at the NULab and in addition, many graduate students work as paid researchers on major DH projects, including Our Marathon, the Women Writers Project, TAPAS, Viral Texts, the Margaret Fuller Transnational Archive, and the Early Caribbean Digital Archive. Northeastern is also home to the Digital Humanities Quarterly, a flagship journal in the field that often employs graduate students from English in editorial work. Our recent placement record of students in the field of Digital Humanities is particularly strong: Master’s and doctoral students in English have found jobs with the Bryn Mawr Library, the University of Florida Library, and the Wiregrass Museum of Art, as well as post-doctoral fellowships at institutions including Brown University, Loyola University, and Middlebury College.
