Minor in Digital Humanities

For whom is the minor in Digital Humanities?

  1. Students majoring in traditional humanities fields like English, History, and Philosophy who also have an interest in learning how to build websites or code or use digital tools to supplement their scholarship.
  2. Students interested in doing graduate work in specialized Digital Humanities or Information Science or Media Studies programs.
  3. Students who want professional experience using online platforms to bring humanistic materials to wider audiences.
  4. Students majoring in software engineering or computer science who want to reflect on the aesthetics of their projects and the wider cultural contexts that frame their work.
  5. Students who wish to work alongside an exciting and growing group of UNF faculty to conceive and implement long-term digital projects. (To see some current projects, visit Projects.)

Featured Courses: Spring 2024

For every semester, we publish a list of courses that count toward the minor in Digital Humanities. Additional regular or special topics courses may be validated as electives for the minor, by approval. Please email the current DHI Director for more information. 

ANT4620 Language, Culture, and Society

This course examines how individuals create and perform their social identities through and in response to language. As a final project, students will craft a Digital Story in stages to connect an aspect of their identities to a concept from the course.

ANT4931 People and Cultures of South Asia

This course asks students to explore aspects of anthropological study in the region of South Asia. Digital Humanities methods are included in a final project where students are asked to create Digital Story to connect a topic or aspect about South Asia to a concept from class materials in narrative exposition.

ANT4020 Humans, Animals and Culture

Are you fascinated by animal behavior, the human-animal bond, or how people came to domesticate many animals around the world? This course will explore interactions between humans and animals by using an anthropological perspective. We will examine how humans are entwined with other animals through social, economic and ideological systems. Students will research animal roles in different cultures over time. They will analyze and share their findings through digital story maps in ArcGIS.

ENC3250 Professional Communications (Sindelar)

This introductory course on Professional Communications is designed for students across all majors. In this course, students will analyze and compose a variety of texts, including a short augmented reality experience.

ENC4260 Applied Technical Communication

This course teaches the fundamentals of technical communications and how to apply them to special topics. In particular, students will be researching embodied environmental risk and creating a digital product to educate chosen public audiences.

FIL4379 Advanced Documentary Production

Students are expected to have taken Documentary Production in a fall semester, or otherwise have permission from Dr. Jillian Smith. (If this course appeals to you plan on taking the two-course sequence through fall and spring in the futuremeeting days and times will remain the same). This class will lay the foundation for the art of documentary by understanding and practicing documentary style and technique. Practicing a range of documentary styles and narratives will open students to the creative possibilities of documentary film, and thorough technical competency will enable them to be realized.

FOT3931 (FC) Latin American Digital Humanities

This course explores intersections between technology and culture in the study of Latin America today. We analyze digital projects based throughout the region that examine the conflicts, tensions, and transformations that have defined Latin America from 1492 to the present. The language of instruction is English.

SPN2201 Spanish Intermediate II

SPN2201 advances intermediate-level language skills, emphasizing speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Students will develop multimodal literacy by annotating 3D objects and virtual reality environments.

SPN3242 Spanish Conversation

This intermediate-level course focuses on enhancing conversational skills in Spanish through directed topics. Students will analyze texts in Spanish using digital text analysis to discuss vocabulary context and create multimodal digital stories using Scalar.

SPN3300 Composition in Spanish

This course enhances students' writing abilities and comprehension of the complexities of the Spanish language. Through digital humanities tools (statistical analysis of texts), texts are adapted for people with reading difficulties using the Easy-to-Read criteria.
