The goal of Foundations in DH Project Development is to teach graduate students in Art History, methods to plan, develop and execute a Digital Humanities research project.

Graduate students across the humanities are trained to critically evaluate earlier scholarship and produce critical scholarship of their own. They are rarely (never) trained in managing the project that will produce their critical scholarship. This UH certificate program hopes to better prepare the emerging professional in the Humanities. The goal of Foundations in DH Project Development is to teach researchers successful methods to produce a planning grant proposal for a UH Internal Award or an external planning grant to develop and execute their research project.

Topics covered include planning your idea, plan development, understanding data, strategizing asset management, learning and applying elements to a project that incorporate universal design, and proposal design.
