Program Overview

The digital humanities is a rapidly growing field of study that blends life-long learning with the development of 21st century technological skills required for the global job market. Many businesses, schools, and churches rely on digital technologies such as data visualization, data mining, and social media to make informed business decisions, market via social media, improve employee productivity, and more. The CUAA digital humanities program equips students with these digital and technical skills to be used in an ethical and humane manner in order to thrive in the workplace.

In completing the Masters of Arts in the Digital Humanities, students will be able to do the following.

  1. Use Python to code and create web-based texts
  2. Use Adobe Creative Suite to create graphic images appropriate for social media and other marketing venues
  3. Create, use, and analyze data visualizations in order to make well informed decisions
  4. Create, use, and analyze geographical information systems in order to make informed decisions
  5. Use rhetorical strategies for collaborating and communicating with specific audiences (colleagues, potential clients, customers, parishioners, etc.)
  6. Create and use digital archives

After completing all their coursework, students have the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge by either completing a practicum or a thesis. Practicums may be completed at a student's place of employment in which s/he completes a special project that focuses on a topic introduced in coursework. The project will be grounded in current research but is a more practical and hands-on project.

The thesis requires in-depth research on a topic of choice and involves writing an academic paper or a multimodal compositions. Students, who choose to write a thesis, will work closely with faculty in the department to ensure they produce quality graduate-level work.
