Ditigal Humanities
The minor in Digital Humanities facilitates the practice and mastery of the core values of humanistic education with the skills of computing and information science in the environment of visual communication and the digital arts. By completing a minor that unites these three areas (humanities, informatics and computing, and the arts) students will be prepared to understand technologies that they will use—hardware, software, and processes—not just as functional objects but also as objects of humanistic and artistic design.
