Professional Certification Programs

Program overview:

Digital tools, techniques, and media have expanded traditional concepts of knowledge in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. This has spurred an array of convergent practices that explore a universe in which print is no longer the primary medium in which knowledge is produced and disseminated. Collectively, these emerging research practices are coined the “Digital Humanities”.

Discover how computing technology, such as data analysis, text mining, and visualization, can be applied to expand research in the humanities and social sciences in this 12-day, 3-month, unique program in the region.

The program is structured as 4 days a month over three months. Each day consists of a morning theory session & an afternoon practical workshop where participants from various disciplines work on real-world cases with the help of experienced professors mastering digital tools and techniques, as well as communication in Arabic, French, & English.
