Digital Humanities, Data Science, and Digital Justice Minor at Xavier University of Louisiana

The design of an undergraduate minor in humanities, data science, and digital justice.

The aim of the Xavier University of Louisiana’s College of Arts and Sciences’ planning grant proposal is to design an undergraduate minor in the area of Humanities, Data Science and Digital Justice. The minor will teach students the humanistic tools of critique, appreciation, and engagement, with the by-product of providing skills development in digital platforms that are used in businesses. This planning grant will facilitate faculty training in strategic platforms that align with business technologies but also offer the opportunity to transmit and teach humanities’ habits of mind and heart that align with our undergraduate core curriculum. In addition to course development, faculty and staff training, and student engagement and outreach, the courses and minor proposal will be submitted for University approval toward the end of the planning year.
