Programme Introduction

Students will be required to select a humanities focus after the year of exploration. It can be undertaken in any Faculty of Arts programme area (e.g. Art History). Students’ growing skills in this specialisation are combined with a focus in interdisciplinary digital technologies, geared to the knowledge and needs of the individual student. These overlapping areas come together in the internship and capstone courses: a focus on experiential and project-based learning in the programme brings together students’ digital technology skills with their chosen humanities discipline to create a truly interdisciplinary programme structure.
