Description
The interdisciplinary field of Digital Humanities is an area of research and teaching at the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities. It offers innovative ways for scholars to ask new questions and create new knowledge within the humanities. Students who minor in Digital Humanities will develop critical skills in the interpretation, analysis, and evaluation of humanistic research questions and the methodologies of the Digital Humanities, such as textual analysis, geo-spatial visualization, network visualization, and new media. Students will develop digital literacies and learn to work in collaborative teams to solve complex, multifaceted problems. The minor draws from an array of academic courses across disciplines and educational resources at Bucknell University that exhibit interdisciplinary digital engagement. The minor spans humanities departments and programs and includes faculty from non-humanities programs and departments as appropriate.
