Major and Minor
Digital Studies at Davidson
Designed to complement majors in every department and program, Digital Studies classes (DIG) bridge usual distinctions between the sciences and the humanities, between empiricism and interpretation.
Combining theory and practice, DIG courses foster liberal arts practices essential for the 21st century: procedural literacy, data awareness, network sensibilities, entrepreneurial thinking, digital citizenship, information preservation and sustainability, and the ethical use of technology.
Digital Studies courses range across three broad areas: digital creativity, which includes digital art and digital storytelling, transmedia production, and programming; digital culture, which focuses on the communities, practices, and counter-practices that digital technology has given rise to; and digital methodology, in which digital tools are used to quantitatively or qualitatively analyze, map, and share text or data.
Digital Studies Minor
The Digital Studies interdisciplinary minor provides a framework for studying the digital tools, cultures, and practices that permeate everyday life. These tools, cultures, and practices shape how we work, play, communicate and learn. Understanding the social and historical contexts of these technologies is a fundamental part of Digital Studies.
