Digital Humanities

This area reflects the intersection of computing and disciplines that explore human culture. While technology has long been leveraged for teaching and learning in science, engineering, and related disciplines, it also can play an essential role in advancing literature, creative writing, art, and the social sciences. Digital storytelling in the form of video narratives and museum technology (“mustech”) such as the use of virtual reality for creating interactive art exhibits are two examples of digital humanities entrance points, but the sky is the limit for this burgeoning field. In this pathway, learn about tools, techniques, and initiatives that are making the humanities more immersive and 21st century.
