Program Details

Marylhurst University is a private, liberal arts school located south of Portland, Oregon. Founded in 1893, Marylhurst is Oregon’s oldest Catholic university and is dedicated to educating adult learners with diverse faiths and cultural backgrounds. The flexible format of the university’s online programs allows professionals to fulfill career, community and family obligations while earning a valuable degree or certificates. The University’s founding Sisters believed that a liberal arts education would serve as the foundation for inspiration and devotion to the men and woman seeking to advance their educations.

One of the many online programs offered by Marylhurst University is a Bachelor of Arts in the studies of English and Digital Humanities. The Digital Humanities degree option embraces new technology and encourages students to use, publish and learn from digital texts, social media, blogs and online creative writing journals.

The new wave of learning great pieces of literature has opened the flood gates of possibilities for many college graduates to use the core liberal arts curriculum in the competitive job market. The written text has provided scholars the foundation for relative thought, provoked ideas and revelations as well as fueled the imagination of later generations. New technology has paved the way for modern scholars to publish and promote works of literature so masses of curious readers can enjoy the information, ideas and thoughts in a convenient and useful method of redistribution.

Marylhurst’s Digital Humanities program is 180 credit hours, and teaches students the expansive works of great literature while also introducing the multiple types of digital media needed to be relevant when entering career opportunities.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Arts in English and Digital Humanities program will have a traditional literature and writing degree, in addition to a solid understanding of how reading and writing have evolved with technology. The potential of the internet, social media, and digital publications work in the favor of many writers, and graduates with a formal education in humanities will use the core courses to succeed in the modern digital arena of the written word.
