The College of Arts and Letters and the College of Engineering have partnered to offer an interdisciplinary Computing & Digital Technologies (CDT) minor that allows students to blend programming and technology skills with the liberal arts in a wide variety of ways. Students in the minor may specialize in one of six tracks:
- User Interface and Experience
- Cyber Safety and Security
- Digital Humanities
- Digital Arts
- Cognitive Science
- Technology Development
CDT is a program open only to Arts & Letters students.* As a CDT student, you will take courses in both colleges to enhance your technical skills and increase your understanding of the ways in which technology can contribute both to your personal and professional life. CDT will enrich your liberal arts education, broaden your perspective, and give you skills and experience that prospective employers will value tremendously.
“Coding, editing video, design — it really is just the tip of the iceberg. What’s below the tip of the iceberg is participation, critical thinking and being able to collaborate. You really need to be a well-rounded, Renaissance, Internet-era kind of person.”
– Mark Surman, Executive Director of the Mozilla Foundation

* Due to overwhelming demand, our Dean's Office has closed CDT to all non-AL students until further notice. That decision will be reevaluated periodically.
