Digital Humanities | Pepperdine University | Seaver College

Digital Humanities

The digital humanities minor focuses on technologically enabled methodological approaches to the humanistic inquiry that expand research and dissemination of art, artifacts, and documentary and literary texts. The minor prepares students for graduate study in art history, history, literature, religion, or library sciences as well as any of the fields which serve public humanities, including cultural art centers and museums. The minor emphasizes the digital humanities' values of open access, public accountability, collaboration, interdisciplinary cooperation, and non-hierarchical organizational structures.

A total of eighteen units will be required for the digital humanities minor.
