The Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies at Duke University offers a Master's Degree in Digital Art History/Computational Media. The eighteen-month program builds on courses and well-developed strengths at Duke University. The program requires 10 courses over three semesters in addition to summer research. Limited funding may become available in the form of grants and assistantships to students contingent upon positive progress in the program.
The Digital Art History track integrates historical disciplines and the study of cultural artifacts with digital visualization techniques for the analysis and presentation of research. This track prepares students for future work in such fields as art, architectural and urban history, public history, city planning and architectural design, cultural heritage, museum exhibition design, and visualizationbased journalism, and provides a springboard for more advanced study in art history, archaeology, architectural history, and visual studies.

The Computational Media track is designed for graduate students focused on the study, creation, and use of digital media and computation in the arts and humanities. This track explores research and presentation strategies enabled by the information sciences, new approaches to computational processes, and new forms of interpreting quantitative and qualitative data.
