RIT’s humanities, computing, and design major pairs the liberal arts with the latest tech to prepare you for careers in dynamic areas that require advanced computing and digital skills.
The major is a collaborative degree program. Students receive a strong foundation in critical thinking, cultural awareness, and communication in the College of Liberal Arts. This major offers a traditional liberal education, which is given a new impact through engagement with digital technology. Course work combines humanities and social science with computational and design curriculum from the colleges of Art and Design and Computing and Information Science in areas such as human-computer interaction, database management, geographic information technologies, and interactivity in new media.
