The CDH enriches Princeton undergraduate scholarship by offering courses, supporting independent research, and providing training and employment opportunities.
Our “Introduction to Digital Humanities” undergraduate seminar, supported by the Humanities Council and taught by a CDH Postdoctoral Fellow, has been called one of the most interdisciplinary courses on campus.
Undergraduates can develop a DH idea by scheduling a one-on-one consultation with a CDH staff researcher, and are welcome at our many workshops to build DH skills.
CDH staff can help design and co-advise DH-inflected junior papers and senior theses. Each year, the CDH Senior Thesis prize is awarded to one or two students for outstanding work on the senior thesis. The deadline for the 2021 prize will be May 21.
The CDH hires undergraduates for part-time work either as student assistants or as researchers on sponsored projects.

The certificate program requires core courses in interdisciplinary approaches to the humanities, and an individualized course of study in which students make connections between their chosen fields in their written work.
