Digital Humanities

What is digital humanities?
The Digital Humanities initiative at SCU connects faculty, staff, and students across departments and schools who use digital methods to conduct research centered on the human, and those who ask humanistic questions of digital tools and methods. DH is deeply interdisciplinary, collaborative, and welcoming to all researchers from across the arts and sciences invested in reflecting on the intersection of the human and digital that is at the core of the identity of The Jesuit University in Silicon Valley.

Digital Humanities strives to introduce students from all different disciplines to the benefits of using technology as an aid in education. Check out this video to see how SCU students from all different fields of study work together to create exciting digital projects!
