Louisiana State University (LSU) to Launch New Online-Only Digital Studies Minor
From The Reveille:
Students who wish to work independently, gain skills in web analytics and have more freedom over their schedule may be interested in the University’s new online-only minor in digital studies.
The new field of study, launching in fall 2019, requires only 15 hours, with three main courses and two elective courses. The program will especially appeal to those in major programs requiring a minor, such as general business administration and mass communication, although associate professor of School of Library & Information Science Boryung Ju, who helped develop the minor program, said the skills taught are transferable to nearly every professional field.
Required courses include Intro to Information & Society, Information & Internet Environments and Foundations of Digital Information Organization. Examples of some electives students can choose from include Information Architecture, Information Techniques for Social Media and Special Topics in Library and Information Science.
