For traditional full-time undergraduates

Digital humanities is grounded in interdisciplinary collaboration between the Humanities and the Schools of Business and Visual and Performing Arts. Humanities coursework in literature, philosophy, history, religion, and cultural studies will provide an essential foundation in storytelling, empathy, ethics, intercultural competence and critical thinking that enhances digital-age and entrepreneurial skills in other disciplines. As a digital humanities major you will complete two internships (once as -2-


a new student and again in the final academic year) within a student-run design firm that will serve the needs of nonprofits and emerging businesses in the local community. Through this experience you will apply learning from coursework in humanities, business and graphic design to tell the stories of local organizations in compelling and ethical ways.

We’ll help you create the study abroad experience that works best for you – short trips or for a semester.
