Minor in Digital Humanities, Media and Society

Empowering students to contribute to positive societal change.

Students may supplement the knowledge acquired in their major with knowledge from another subject area, offered as part of a minor.

A Minor is equivalent to 30 credits that must be earned during the duration of the master’s program and are taken in courses offered by another section. The 30 credits count toward the 120 credits of the Master’s degree in accordance with section regulations, and replace 30 credits in your optional courses. Please note that if you earn more than 30 credits in your Minor, the additional credits will not count towards your Master.

The Minor will be mentioned in the Diploma Supplement.
