Graduate Certificate

The Digital Studies Institute at the University of Michigan offers a 12-credit hour Graduate Certificate Program focusing on the study of the digital world from a critical, interdisciplinary perspective. As we continue to integrate the digital into our personal and professional lives, our economic and civic systems, our healthcare and education structures, and so on, we are constantly confronted with issues of power, access, exclusion, inequality, racism, misogyny, homophobia, bias, and other systemic injustice that exist in the culture producing our digital tools and environments. The courses and opportunities available to graduate students in the Digital Studies Certificate Program put students at the bleeding edge of research in this area to ask and attempt to answer, “How can we make our digital world better, safer, and more inclusive?”
