Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs in Digital Arts & Humanities

University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus


Earn an Interdisciplinary MA or PhD in Digital Arts & Humanities at UBC’s Okanagan campus. Research and creative practice undertaken in this graduate program brings computing technologies and makerspace methods together to address such humanities topics as social justice, access, sustainability, ethics, labour, ecology, collaboration, interaction, making, pedagogy, and reading, as well as the ways in which the arts and humanities can pose vital questions about computing technologies.

Our students will gain a host of skills that prepare them for careers in education, consulting, governmental and non-governmental organizations, industrial sectors, and more. With the research, teaching, making, and analytical skills they gain in the Digital Arts and Humanities theme, our PhD students will be prepared to pursue academic and alternative academic career paths.


Students in the IGS Digital Arts & Humanities program have access to the expertise of diverse, nationally and internationally recognized researchers from a variety of faculties and disciplines in a coherent, thematic framework. During their degree, students will have the opportunity to conduct original research, learn to become effective educators, and work as Teaching Assistants, as well as acquire knowledge in the professional practices of writing for publication, academic CV development, grant writing, networking, and community-engaged research skills.
