Curriculum

Digital Studies concentrators complete four main requirements, involving a total of at least 22 credits of academic work at Grinnell:

  1. A Foundation Course, which introduces some of the methods and ways of thinking that the student will build upon in the rest of the concentration;
  2. Area Courses, the bulk of the concentration, consisting of 16 credits of work ranging from coding to digital cultures to creative applications of digital tools;
  3. A Culminating Experience, in the form either of a concentration seminar or an independent study; and
  4. A Public Presentation in which the concentrator shares some aspect of their experience in Digital Studies, generally drawing on the Culminating Experience.

The official list of courses that fulfill these requirements will be posted on the Grinnell College website.
