Christopher Newport University offers an interdisciplinary minor in digital humanities for undergraduates. The program is designed to meet the following objectives:
- Provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare them for careers where digital media and technology enrich approaches to traditional humanities-oriented fields and projects such as education, library science, museum curation, non-profits, political campaigns, graduate research, design, fine art, and music/film/theater/dance production, as well as related fields like mass communication, journalism, and marketing.
- Provide students with the concepts and vocabulary necessary for actively contributing to on-going conversations regarding how the digital has changed what it means to be human, what shape future humanities research should/will take, the status of print culture, and the value of copyright.
- Provide students with the ability to operate and experiment with various digital media applications, utilize technological tools, and code basic programs for analyzing texts and other humanities works.
