The recent emergence of the Glasgow Digital Humanities Network places HATII, its students and its staff at the heart of this dynamic and culturally significant field.

ischools‌Globally, HATII is a member of the prestigious iSchools Organisation, dedicated to advancing the information field in the 21st Century. While each individual iSchool has its own strengths and specializations, together we share a fundamental interest in the relationships between information, people, and technology.

As well as this thriving research culture, HATII provides three taught masters courses, in Information Management and Preservation, Computer Forensics and E-Discovery, and Museum Studies. Our undergraduate degree in Digital Media and Information Studies is one of the few digital humanities programmes offered in the UK; where we examine the creation, use and impact of digital content and information technology in the arts, humanities and society at large. With Raspberry Pis selling at an astonishing rate and every child a digital native, we reflect this cultural tectonic shift through our programme by bringing a human perspective to the issues of the digital age while developing the skills demanded by the digital society.
