Experiential Learning Opportunities

Students in the Digital Humanities Minor are required to fulfill an experiential learning component.

Students are encouraged to fulfill this requirement through an internship that focuses on a digital project or bringing digital methods to a work environment. Internships in libraries, museums, archives, and outside of MSU are encouraged. The College of Arts and Letters and the MSU Career Center have resources for connecting students to internship opportunities within MSU and beyond.

Internships in the Digital Humanities and Literary Cognition Lab, participation in the Cultural Heritage Informatics Initiative Field School, or work on a digital humanities project from across MSU's units are encouraged.

Independent study that focuses on developing a digital project led by the student is another option for fulfilling the experiential requirement.

The capstone course for some Majors may fulfill this requirement. Check with the Digital Humanities undergraduate advisor to see if your capstone will qualify.

Students are also strongly encouraged to become involved in the digital humanities community at MSU. Attendance at workshops, reading groups, LOCUS talks, and other digital humanities speakers are easy ways to become involved. For information about these opportunities, check the Digital Humanities calendar under the Events tab and the digitalhumanities.msu.edu website.
