The Centre for Digital Humanities is a teaching and research unit as well as a source of information and support to the Faculty of Humanities.

The Centre supports the Interactive Arts and Science Program, in which students study and create in the exciting and rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field of digital media, interactivity and games. IASC students learn about interactive media, fiction, games, simulations and immersive environments through independent inquiry, problem solving and portfolio building. They explore the interplay of these evolving media and our understanding of human identity and values. They build a framework of knowledge around examination of technoculture, narrative, gameplay, computing and media design and production.

The Centre for Digital Humanities Support Unit promotes and implements educational technology in the Humanities. Support for students and faculty is provided for approximately 4800 class and computer lab hours per year. In addition, the Centre provides services in e-learning, web development, scanning and conversion to digital formats.
