The minor in digital humanities and social sciences is a multi-disciplinary program administered by several departments. The digital humanities and social science encompasses the use of computing and computing-related technologies as a primary methodological focus of research within fields like history, philosophy, literature, linguistics, art, archaeology, sociology, and cultural anthropology. Scholars engaging in such practices use computers as more than just tools; rather, they use computing to re-imagine how they might interpret and/or share their research. Students who participate in this minor will be given the opportunity to develop vocational skills that will greatly enhance the marketability of their humanities and/or social sciences degree while developing strong mentoring relationships with faculty. Students will work with members of the IRIS Center, facilitating cross-disciplinary and collaborative projects that involve applications, enhancements, andre-conceptualizations of information technologies in the humanities and social sciences.
Students enrolled in the minor will complete a minimum of 18 credit hours, to be divided between 7 credit hours of required courses, and 12 credit hours of elective courses.
