Digital Humanities Minor

This is an 18 hour minor in digital humanities which consists of one introductory course (1000 level), two skills courses (2000 level) and three applied courses (3000-4000 level). The minor planning team has defined the vision of the minor as grounded in data science and social justice. It is designed to teach students the skills of the humanities: critical thinking, persuasive communication, and engagement with humanist subject matter. Students will learn technical tools for humanistic inquiry and that technologies are not neutral but are developed out of social and political contexts and assumptions. This minor offers students a unique opportunity to learn the habits of thought offered through humanities with an emphasis on digital tools used frequently in business and industry. CAS will become a leader in preparing students with the emerging skills required to work in 21st century cultural organizations.
