Digital Studies Certificate Program
Digital Studies is an interdisciplinary program that explores the relationship between communication and digital technologies. Our courses teach students to both produce digital content and critically assess the digital content they encounter through hands-on training with video, audio, and interactive digital media tools.
Do More with the Digital Studies Certificate
Created in 2012, the Digital Studies Certificate brings together departments from across campus and allows students to choose from over fifty courses to create their own individualized digital curriculum. Through its course offerings, professors, tools and experiences, the Digital Studies Certificate provides digital skills and technology to students that prepare them for future careers in every industry.
In the rapidly changing digital environment, students must be able to quickly adapt to these changes in order to be successful. Our courses challenge students to critically assess all modes of digital communication and become savvy users of current digital technology. Depending on the coursework chosen, students may learn skills in web design, video editing, photography, database management, illustration, graphic design, and more!
