Digital Humanities Minor

The Digital Humanities minor is intended to provide students with literacy in creating, interpreting, and applying the technologies of the digital world. It examines the cultural and social impact of new technologies and enables students to harness these technologies to develop their own research projects in a wide range of fields.

To apply for the minor, students must (1) have an overall grade-point average of 2.7 or better and (2) submit an application essay supporting their interest in pursuing the minor and enumerating any digital projects that they have already undertaken. On acceptance to the minor, students are expected to identify an academic area of digital humanities in which they intend to concentrate. Information about the minor is available on the minor website. To submit an application for the minor, see the website.
