The B.A. Digital Philology programme is directed at those who are interested in language, literature, history, and culture as well as in digital communication and their technology, in software, the internet, and new media and thus in the young field of science of Digital Humanities. Students analyse and interpret language and communication, literary and non-literary texts of all periods with a focus on German and English, and utilise established hermeneutic procedures in connection with digital techniques of corpus and computer linguistics in this context. They contribute to the research and preservation of cultural heritage by analysing and publishing texts, images, and artefacts at publishing houses, libraries, archives, and museums while taking traditional and digital research methods and publishing media such as books, ebooks, and the world wide web into account.
As one of the leading Technical Universities, the Technical University of Darmstadt offers ideal technical, personal, and infrastructural conditions for Digital Humanities.
