All branches of learning rely increasingly on digital tools and knowledge—including in the Humanities. Digital Humanities is distinct from other fields of study in computational methods in its focus on applying or adapting digital tools and framework to research questions, debates, and problems in the Humanities. The interdepartmental Digital Humanities Minor equips students with critical thinking and technological skills, while providing hands on experience through workshops and internships where students can apply what they are learning in the classroom to projects on campus and in the community. The minor is open to students from all majors.
Students in the minor will be trained to define complex problems in ways that allow them to apply technologies effectively and critically toward solutions, while accounting for the social, cultural, and ethical ramifications of those technologies. In addition to gaining competence in the use of high-powered, widely applicable digital technologies, students in the minor will acquire skills in collaboration, written and spoken communication, web design, project management, and presentation and portfolio building.
