No aspect of research and education has been untouched by digital developments. In the twenty-first century, these transformations have been particularly acute in the humanities, leading to the creation of new academic paradigms in “digital humanities.” We help UNC-Chapel Hill meet these developments head on in ways that extend our own unique history and future as a great public, global research university.

The Digital Humanities Graduate Certificate provides established and emerging professionals with experience and credential in the digital humanities that can be customized to their particular needs through self-selected coursework and relevant field experience.


The Digital Dissertation Fellowships support graduate students performing original, multi-dimensional research projects with significant digital components, advancing digital methods skills and creating unique collaborative opportunities.


A joint effort between the Digital Innovation Lab and the Institute for the Arts and Humanities, the Faculty Fellowship program identified and encouraged select UNC faculty interested in digital approaches to their academic practice in the arts and humanities, creating data-driven transformative works that look outside their own fields and outside academia, bringing insights from their digital projects back into their teaching and mentoring.
