The Centre for Digital Humanities (CDH) is a teaching and research unit which focuses on the intersection of interactive technologies and the humanities. The Centre is home to Brock's Interactive Arts and Science (IASC) program and the GAME program, the latter in partnership with the Department of Computer Science and Niagara College.

The Centre offers courses to Brock students pursuing studies in a wide range of disciplines within and beyond the Faculty of Humanities.

The Centre is home to the Brock University Design Studio (BUDS) which provides students across Brock with course-based opportunities to practice and hone their knowledge and skills within a real-world, collaborative, project-based production studio context that incorporates a service-learning orientation. Visit for more information.

Concurrent BA (Honours)/BEd
The Centre for Digital Humanities and the Faculty of Education co-operate in offering a concurrent six-year program combining a Bachelor of Arts (BA) (Honours) degree in Interactive Arts and Science with a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree for students interested in teaching at the Junior/Intermediate level (grades 4-10) emphasizing elementary school (grades 4-8). Refer to the Education – Concurrent BA (Honours)/BEd (Junior/Intermediate) program listings for further information.


The Centre's facilities include multimedia teaching labs and seminar rooms as well as research and development labs. The Centre works in close partnership with other academic and administrative units at Brock as well as a number of external partners.

Within the Faculty of Humanities, the Centre for Digital Humanities offers support and services to both faculty and students.
