Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Launching Bachelor’s Degree in Digital Humanities and Social Sciences
A bachelor’s degree in digital humanities and social sciences – the first of its kind in the nation – will combine core liberal arts studies with technical courses such as computer programming to better prepare graduates for employment.
Students will be registered in Fall 2016.
The students majoring in digital humanities and social sciences will start learning basic programming and design principles in web development courses as well as learning the history of media technologies and digital culture. Later, they will construct the core of their curriculum to shape a degree that will meet their career desires.
Courses being offered include Culture and Computers, Media Archeology, Digital Storytelling and Ethics in the Emerging Digital Era.
Students will follow RIT’s co-op model of at least one semester of experiential, on-the-job learning.
