Digital Humanities Minor


The 18-hour minor in digital humanities consists of two introductory Theory and Practice courses and three advanced Application and Engagement courses. The learning for this minor is grounded in data science and social justice, while teaching 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. Through this minor, students will be better prepared with the emerging skills required to work in 21st century cultural organizations.
