Digital Humanities

UB students graduate into a world changing by the second. One of the most crucial evolutions is in how we access, share and experience information.

It's Not Enough to Keep Pace

The Digital Humanities Initiative represents a pioneering effort to use emerging technologies as both tools of scholarly preservation and instruments of a revolutionary humanities education.

By harnessing the power of artificial intelligence and fostering meaningful collaborations between engineers and humanists, scientists and storytellers, the College of Arts and Sciences will prepare students to become first-responders on the scene of global problem-solving. Able to predict, interpret, adapt and act, fully-vetted on their responsibility to lead the next wave of cultural innovation, our graduates will not just embrace change—they will compel it.
