Digital Humanities: PLO
Program Learning Outcomes
A student who graduates with a minor in digital humanities should be able to:
- Bring together the traditional tools of humanistic thinking (interpretation and critique, historical perspective, comparative cultural and social analysis, contextualization, archival research) with the tools of computational thinking (information design, statistical analysis, geographic information systems, database creation, and computer graphics) to formulate, analyze, and interpret a humanities-based research problem;
- Understand and produce humanities-based data from multi-modal and multimedia sources through systematic data processing and data-mining;
- Evaluate and design digital projects and tools critically for communication, project development, and long-term preservation of digital data in ways that demonstrate an understanding of the appropriate uses and limitations of tools and projects on both practical and ethical levels, including sensitivity to issues of sustainability, intellectual property, open access/proprietary knowledge, and private and public dissemination;
- Work collaboratively and think across disciplines, media, and methodologies on multi-authored research projects, project proposals, reports, and presentations aimed at both academic and nonacademic communities.
