Program Director: Tracy Leavelle

The interdisciplinary minor in Digital Humanities explores the role and impact of digital technologies on our lives in the twenty-first century. Students will learn to evaluate, select, and use a wide-range of digital tools to communicate ideas and arguments to a variety of audiences and will become thoughtful and critical users of digital tools, technologies, and spaces. The minor is designed to be flexible to a student’s own interests and each student will have an opportunity to create full-scale digital projects on humanities and related topics that include history, literature, archaeology, communication studies, geospatial analysis, textual analysis, and more.
