Why follow the same worn path when you can create your own? As a Bucknell comparative & digital humanities major, you'll become an iconoclast who charts an individualized path through the liberal arts.
Along the way, you'll be supported by deep, one-on-one relationships with faculty working at the forefront of their fields and a rich ecology for humanistic inquiry at Bucknell. Your journey culminates in the senior thesis, an original contribution to your chosen field of study.
Students of comparative & digital humanities are global citizens who translate diverse worldviews and conjugate digital and embodied realities. They are path-breakers and change-makers.
Through our rigorous and wide-ranging course offerings, you'll build skills in critical, relational and design thinking while honing your communication skills in writing, public speaking, data curation and digital design. You’ll become a leader as you forge a path through disciplines and media, languages and cultures, times and places.
These skills won't just prepare you for a job. They'll equip you to be one step ahead of our ever-changing world and to understand your place in it so you can make an impact. Your independence and leadership mean you’ll be able to translate these in-demand skills into any profession. Recent alumni have pursued careers in language research, investment analysis and consulting, as well as graduate study in literature, law, politics and urban planning.
