Transform Your Future with Digital Skills
The Digital Technology and Cultures B.A. allows students to gain valuable digital skills while exploring what it means to be human in the digital age.
Critical, Creative, and Communication Skills
Students in the program will study cutting-edge theory on what it means to be human in the digital world while sharpening such skills as research and Information retrieval, collaboration, oral and written communication, and critical and creative thinking.
Students use a variety of digital tools (such as Python, Tableau, Google Analytics, Hootsuite, and Photoshop, to name a few) to explore and create in such areas as computational thinking, multimodal composition, social media, and data visualization. Students may also choose to combine the Web Development certificate with this major.
The Digital Cultures and Technology B.A. emphasizes experiential and project-based learning. All of our programs are focused on building portfolios of work in which students showcase their classwork and projects for future employers.
