Faculty advising committee
You will form a committee of two professors who will help determine electives and advise you on your digital projects. The faculty will typically be from your home discipline in the humanities, social sciences, or professional school (e.g., English, romance languages, classics, history, sociology, computer science, library and information science, or journalism). The other adviser will be from the iSchool.
Prior to acceptance into the program, you may enroll as a post-baccalaureate (formerly nondegree-seeking) student in up to 3 credit hours. Enrollment does not guarantee acceptance. Learn more about nondegree-seeking university student admissions.
