General Education

art and design school student

The core curriculum and electives in the General Education Department complement the technical training our students receive and infuse that training with a broader canvas of knowledge and creative thought. The content of these courses is designed to provide critical thinking and a framework for learning for students in all programs of study.

The General Education Department also aims to enhance technical studies by stimulating the imagination, provoking each student’s innate curiosity, and encouraging students to embark on a lifetime of independent learning and exploration of technical disciplines, the humanities, and our culture. The courses foster the intellectual and aesthetic growth of students and instill in them a respect for human values.

Finally, the General Education Department takes a holistic approach to learning, making connections between all subject matters, their relevance to historical and cultural contexts, and the careers that lie ahead.
