Digital Literacy

Digital Literacy is among the ten Core Competencies you develop in CLA that employers and alumni tell us matter most.

Digital technologies have the power to connect people and information—or create barriers. Understand the digital world’s underpinnings and evolution, and you’ll be empowered to harness your message and bring forth the next big thing.


Digital Literacy leverages knowledge of information and communications technology and media literacies, and utilizes the interpersonal skills necessary to succeed in a digital space.

Those competent in Digital Literacy:

  • Assess sources of information
  • Use technologies responsibly
  • Adapt tools to new purposes
  • Keep up with the evolving technology landscape
