Job profiles

Job market:

  1. Humanities students without computer competence don't find jobs
  2. Employers cannot find enough humanities students with computer competence

New opportunities / job profiles are emerging:

  1. Graduates who can integrate new computing methods in traditional humanities jobs: the archive, library, museum, publishing, culture and entertainment sectors;
  2. Graduates who can integrate humanities knowledge in traditional information technology jobs: the communication industries with applications in telecom, media, car manufacturing, distance education, etc.;
  3. Graduates who can develop new technology: human language industries, information retrieval, computer games, digital art, text coding, etc.
But integrating computing in humanities education does not mean teaching a history student how to use a word processor...
... so what does integrated humanities computing mean?
