Minor Digital Humanities and Social Analytics


The sources and objects studied in history, media, literature, art, and social sciences are increasingly becoming available in digital formats. The minor Digital Humanities and Social Analytics will train you in how to create and analyse different types of data collections, using tools for text mining, data analysis and visualization.

The courses include hands-on training, research internships in ongoing research projects, as well as theoretical reflection on the promises of ‘the digital’ for your own discipline. Practical computational training will sharpen your analytical skills and enhance your job opportunities in the future.

To organize this minor VU Amsterdam works closely together with the KNAW Humanities Cluster in Amsterdam, where students participate in cutting edge digital humanities projects.
