Texas Tech University's Graduate Certificate in Book History and Digital Humanities helps meet the clear need for training in digital humanities and history of the book for graduate students across the curriculum; for professionals in the workforce; and for graduating seniors in the humanities wishing to broaden their job opportunities. Students can enroll in courses in order to prepare for a career in publishing, civil service, industry, digital humanities, library science, or the academy; develop new workplace skills or supplements existing skills; learn best practices for converting cultural artifacts into digital form; understand the relationship between print culture, book history, and textual criticism; and develop or improve pedagogical or technological skills.
Although there is no application deadline, potential students are encouraged to submit all application materials at least three months prior to the projected initial enrollment.
Students enrolled in the Certificate in Book History and Digital Humanities take 15 credit hours' worth of courses.
