The Department of Digital Humanities is a global leader in researching digital culture and society, and in exploring the use of advanced technology-related methods in humanities research.
Since our founding in 1992, we have spearheaded new intellectual possibilities among computing, the humanities and the social sciences.
The Department offers an undergraduate degree in Digital Culture, which looks at how technological innovations are bringing about new challenges and opportunities in our societies. Postgraduate students can choose from a number of different MA programmes, including in Big Data in Culture & Society, Digital Culture & Society and Digital Asset & Media Management, as well as our MA/PhD research degrees in Digital Humanities.
We are the largest and most prestigious department of our kind worldwide, ranked first in the UK (along with the Department of Culture, Media & Creative Industries) in the latest Research Excellence Framework. Our current work includes topics such as big and open data, cultural curation and preservation, digital labour, global infrastructures, networked identities, and democracy.
King's College London has a long tradition of research in the digital humanities, going back to the early 1970s. The Department for Digital Humanities started as the 'Centre for Computing in the Humanities' in 1992. The Department has been highly influential in areas of digital information management and digital research methods, and today its expertise in digital archives and libraries is still in high demand.
