Digital Humanities Curriculum

This is the place for experiential and experimental learning—you'll take your ideas and run with them and develop new ways of thinking in our dynamic, modern economy. Combine an in-depth understanding of core and advanced computing and digital skills, with the curiosity and freedom of liberal arts to investigate your interests with Champlain's BS in Digital Humanities. Classes introduce you to digital and new media technologies including python programming, videography, analytics management, geospatial analysis, and digital storytelling among others, while delivering a structured and comprehensive liberal arts education.

This investigative degree is highly customizable: You'll have the ability to tailor your learning by building your digital toolkit, diving deep into inquiry through your research thread, and building a liberal arts foundation with the digital humanities spine. However you choose to mix and match, you'll enter the professional world with enhanced career flexibility to pioneer new opportunities and excel in existing positions within a wide range of industries.
