The Faculty of E-Learning Technologies and Humanities is a unique example of successful synergy between engineering sciences and humanities. FETH has become the first faculty in the Baltics to implement a new educational concept, based on convergence between the contrasting fields of study. We believe that future knowledge is interdisciplinary; therefore, the interdisciplinary aspect is clearly manifested and integrated in every study course we offer. Currently, the FELTH implements internationally accredited study programmes in technical translation, e-learning technologies and digital humanities.
The Academic Master Study Programme «Digital Humanities» differs from similar study programmes in either Engineering or Humanities, as it ensures students can receive a double qualification. Students with both Bachelor degree in Humantities and related fields and Bachelor degree in Engineering can enroll for the programme. Special adjustment study courses are offered to the students depending on their undergraduate degree, they provide the necessary level of competence in the second major field. Graduates of the study programme should not only develop competence in dealing with the constantly growing volume of information, but also develop subject knowledge in the respective fields.
The value of the Academic Master Study Programme «Digital Humanities» is determined by a great demand for specialists with double qualification and a degree in cross-disciplinary field able to demonstrate multiple competences on the labour market of Latvia and abroad.
Programme «Digital Humanities» ensures teaching ESP on the advanced level, development of research skills, synthesis and integration of skills and competences according to the requirements of the European Union institutions and labour market.
Thanks to the extensive academic experience, FETH providies an expert overview of research in the field of second-language teaching and learning. Our employees actively keep track of innovations and other changes in teaching tendencies on the global scale.
