MA IN DIGITAL CURATION
Two-year International Master’s Programme in Digital Curation at King’s College London (UK) and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Germany)
Admissions open for 2014 entry: http://goo.gl/fMFjC1
The new MA in Digital Curation (MADC) is a two-year international programme, run jointly by King’s College London and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, that responds to the increasing demand for digitally literate professionals to manage and curate the digital information and digital assets of organisations across the public and private sectors, including education, research and memory institutions, as well as wider industry. This unique joint programme allows students to spend a year each in two of Europe’s most vibrant cities – Berlin and London – with the opportunities to engage with the rich culture and heritage of both cities.
The MA in Digital Curation will prepare students for leadership roles in organisations possessing significant volumes of digital information and knowledge. Students will develop their critical and reflective capacities by addressing a range of theoretical approaches from archival, library, information and management science, and will acquire the key strategic, technical and practical skills required for a career or further research in the rapidly expanding field of digital curation. Students will study a range of topics including metadata, preservation, knowledge representation, digital libraries, ethics and rights management, and new digital technologies and methods, including cloud, crowd-sourcing, and the social web.
MADC is taught jointly in the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s and the School of Library and Information Science at Humboldt, with students spending two consecutive semesters at Humboldt followed by two semesters at King’s over the course of two years. Lecturers are experts in library, archive and information science, with specialist knowledge in digital technologies and processes. They come from diverse and highly interdisciplinary backgrounds, including running digital archives or working in the digital industries.
