Digital Humanities


Bachelor of Arts





The Digital Humanities major is designed to equip students for a rapidly changing twenty-first-century environment. By acquiring both soft and technical skills, students develop a competitive advantage, making them highly desirable in the modern job market. The program combines core elements of a traditional humanities degree with innovative skills in data analysis and artificial intelligence. While completing coursework in history and literature, students conduct original research utilizing cutting-edge tools in AI, machine learning, and data science.

The major offers three concentrations:

  • Creative Writing – cultivates students’ craft in poetry, prose and instructs them in the mechanics of writing and publication
  • Humanities – provides a robust offering of upper-division English, History, and Public Policy electives
  • History – designed for students interested in teaching, law, public service or further graduate studies
  • Describe key ideas and inventions that shaped the history of thought and technology
  • Write and communicate clearly and effectively in diverse contexts
  • Articulate how a Gospel Worldview informs research in the Digital Humanities
  • Employ tools for the analysis and visualization of data related to history and literature
