Digital Humanities Class Options


DH Minor students must complete two elective classes (minimum of 6 credits) to fulfill the Minor requirements. Below is a list of courses that have counted in the past toward the Minor or are potential options. This list is not comprehensive, and it will change over time as course offerings across departments evolve. 

It is important to note that many College of Arts and Letters courses, as well as courses from other colleges, may count toward the Digital Humanities Minor. If the student can make the case that the course incorporates digital methods and approaches to humanities problems, and the DH undergraduate advisor approves, then the course may count toward the Minor. Contact Kristen Mapes (kmapes@msu.edu) with questions and for further information. 

Each course title is followed by the instructor associated with the upcoming or current term's running of the course.
