EDH stands for English and Digital Humanities, a truly one-of-a-kind undergraduate degree program at Marylhurst University (also the official sponsor of DigiWriMo). The online EDH degree integrates literary studies, the digital humanities, service learning and a hybrid approach to online instruction… Which means that you learn about words, texts, and people as they live and move and breath online and in RL. It’s a small, selective program where you get to study in a cohort (a team of students who go through the program together) and full-time faculty from the on-campus department.
But there’s more! Every student in the EDH program gets a free iPad to call their very own. What better way to discover how the digital and the personal interact? Imagine doing coursework from atop Mount Hood or reading Thoreau’s Walden while sitting next to the Willamette River. No worries if you’re not in Portland and have no idea what Mount Hood is. While you’ll take several short trips to Portland to collaborate in person with your teachers and fellow students, most of the coursework can be done online.
The degree offers the flexibility of online coursework, while emphasizing active learning, networking, and community building.
Oh, and one more thing. EDH students can actually earn credit for their DigiWriMo experience. Check it out!
