The Digital and Public Humanities minor will highlight the real-world utility and employability of humanities disciplines, demonstrating the value of humanistic perspectives in business-oriented and tech-driven areas of study, and providing students with hands-on learning opportunities with external partners. Students in the minor will receive training in both computational methodologies and humanistic analytical perspectives and will be provided with a project-based curricular environment that demonstrates how humanities research engages with and influences the world.
The interweaving of digital and public humanities methodologies provides students with valuable insight into the significance of humanities research in the world. Both digital and public humanities approaches demand that students study texts, images, and objects from theoretical perspectives and practically enact these perspectives to appeal to a range of audiences as they engage in applied humanities work. The minor will therefore balance students’ desire for marketable employment skills with the inherent and fundamental ability of the humanities to give voice to a range of viewpoints that can contribute to the betterment of ourselves, our community, and our society.
