WHO MAY APPLY? 

Students from any school at the University may apply to the Certificate program. The curriculum is designed to sit lightly on departmental requirements, and to enhance the work students do within their own discipline.

WHEN DO I APPLY?

The next deadline for application is in February 2021.

HOW DO I APPLY? 

Here is a link to our application form. Once you've filled it out, you'll be added to the DH Certificate Collab site, where you will upload a one-page statement of your purpose in applying for the DH Certificate, a CV, a pdf of your transcript (unofficial is fine), and a completed student progress timeline form (contact mapp@virginia.edu).

I HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED MY DEPARTMENTAL COURSEWORK REQUIREMENTS.  CAN I STILL APPLY? 

Yes!  Many DH-interested doctoral students, even those who are in the final year of their program, find that they have completed most of the requirements for the DH Certificate.  MA students who have two semesters left may also be able to enroll in the program.  It's important to speak to Rennie Mapp, Administrative Director, as soon as possible to find out whether you're already on your way to gaining a DH Certificate. UVA's DH certificate is designed to recognize work that students are already doing as well as to encourage students to take on new DH work.

WHOM SHOULD I CONTACT FOR MORE INFORMATION?

Please contact Rennie Mapp, DH certificate project manager, at mapp@virginia.edu if you have questions or comments.
