Digital humanities is a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary field that incorporates new tools and methodologies for pursuing modes of inquiry and producing forms of scholarship and engagement in the humanities. It seeks to apply humanistic reasoning and research to important questions related to technology, such as social sustainability, big data, and privacy. Work in digital humanities includes public humanities, data mining/visualization, web design, textual analysis, educational technology, and ethics and technology. The specialization in digital humanities is open to all students majoring in creative writing, English, fine arts, history, and modern languages. It requires a set curriculum of interdisciplinary courses as well as a final capstone project: HUM 405 Digital Humanities Praxis .
