The Digital Humanities integrated learning major is a 21-credit interdisciplinary program that brings the traditional strengths of the humanities to the study of digital culture. The digital studies major provides students with a structured opportunity to apply the skills of critical thinking, creativity, and historical contextualization to digital cultures and technologies. The major features three introductory core courses, one course focused on technical skills, three elective courses chosen from offerings in various disciplines, and a capstone in which students will demonstrate their mastery and understanding of digital culture. The major seeks to combine a rigorous contextualization of digital technology and culture within a much longer history (and analysis of our own moment in history) with creative experimentation with digital technology.

This Digital Humanities ILM will provide students with an opportunity to deepen their critical, theoretical, and historical perspectives on digital technologies. The major may be paired with any major in the College of Arts and Sciences/Maxwell, which will allow our students to explore focused paths for integrating uses of technology with work in liberal arts disciplines.
