Program Details

The rapid growth of digital collections and online services has led to a shortage of information professionals who possess the technical knowledge and learning skills needed to create and manage digital collections in a fast-changing environment. The Digital Curation graduate certificate program helps fill this gap by combining intensive, hands-on technology learning with a thorough grounding in the theoretical principles needed to manage large, complex digital collections. The curriculum takes a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to managing digital information and is designed to support a wide range of career paths in libraries, museums, archives, records management, data curation and more. Digital Curation also offers a path for individuals with undergraduate degrees who are interested in digital collections but may not yet be ready to commit to a full degree program.

The certificate consists of six 14-week graduate-level courses to be taken within three years. Students can begin the program in the summer, fall or spring semesters each year.

*Residents of some U.S. Territories may not be eligible. Please see our Eligibility & State Authorization page for more information.
