Digital History

The Department of History offers training and expertise in the field of Digital History. Digital History connects historical research and insights with the cutting-edge digital technologies that enable historians to not only streamline their research but also share their insights with the broader public. Digital History brings academic scholarship to public audiences through creativity and accessibility.

All History students have the opportunity to research and/or create Digital History projects through the completion of the History B.A. and M.A. programs. Digital History projects are introduced early in students’ undergraduate careers, and all M.A. students take a specialized graduate course and include a Digital History component in their Master’s theses.
