[NOTE: Change in Minor to 15 credits effective Fall 2016. Current students can elect to move to 15 credits minor as of Spring 2016. Consult with your advisor]
This 15-credit minor is designed for students interested in learning the essentials of digital production (e.g., graphic design, web design, photography, and film) as well as digital studies (media studies, the impact of technology on society). As technology becomes increasingly intertwined with our everyday lives, it has become increasingly important to possess not only an understanding of computing but to learn how to effectively utilize computer technologies in our professional and personal lives as well as to understand how these same technologies can help shape our lives for better or worse. With a growing number of positions in the field of Information Technology (IT) and a projected shortage of Instructional Technologists, a Digital Humanities concentration can help students become more competitive in the job market.
Choose any five courses from the following list that count toward the Digital Humanities minor:
ART1174: Desktop Publishing
Other, selected classes may be approved by a Humanities faculty advisor.
