Digital humanities

Undergraduate minor

About the minor

The way we approach humanities subjects, such as English, history, philosophy, and religious studies, began to change with the advent of the internet. Over past decades, new digital tools and techniques have expanded our subjects and practices of studying these fields. The minor in digital humanities prepares students to enter this new world, equipping them with skills in digital text analysis, data visualization, mapping and geospatial studies, the creation of multimedia archives, and forms of digital storytelling. While learning how to create digital humanities projects, students will have opportunities to study global cultural expressions that emerge through new forms of digital reading, writing, and gaming.
