RIT’s digital humanities major pairs the liberal arts with digital technologies to prepare you for careers in dynamic areas that require advanced computing and digital skills.
The major is a collaborative degree program. Students receive a strong foundation in critical thinking, cultural awareness, and communication in the College of Liberal Arts. This major offers a traditional liberal education, which is given a new impact through engagement with digital technology. Course work combines humanities and social science with computational and design curriculum from the colleges of Art and Design and Computing and Information Science in areas such as human-computer interaction, database management, geographic information technologies, and interactivity in new media.

Cooperative education, or co-op for short, is full-time, paid work experience in your field of study. And it sets RIT graduates apart from their competitors. It’s exposure–early and often–to a variety of professional work environments, career paths, and industries. RIT co-op is designed for your success.
Students in the digital humanities major are required to complete at least one cooperative education or internship experience. Students may complete this requirement during any summer following the second year, however, the requirement must be completed before the final year. The Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education assists students in identifying and applying to co-op and internship positions.
