Program Goals

The minor has two overarching goals, both oriented toward helping students navigate the increasingly digitized world that we inhabit:

  • The first is to teach students the skills necessary to use digital skills and tools foundational to their careers, including data literacy, visualization, multimedia production, visual rhetoric, and design.
  • The second is to gain the knowledge to critically assess digital culture, including the interrogation of social media, digital identity and representation, and exploring the ethical implications of digital access.
