Digital Humanities Minor

Combine your interest in the arts and human culture with the power of computing. You can gain experience with digital technology and data analysis by earning a Digital Humanities minor.As such, it is offered jointly by the Indiana University School of Liberal Arts, School of Informatics and Computing, and Herron School of Art and Design.

The minor guides students in employing visual communication and informatics in the arts, social sciences, and humanities. Students will learn to work with large datasets and perform data analysis on texts. The minor prepares students to understand the technologies they use as objects of humanistic and artistic design, laden with historical and cultural perspectives that interact with political and economic systems. This experience with digital technologies and humanistic thinking expands opportunities to work in today’s highly interconnected global environment.
