General Education

UAT's general education program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to expand their understanding of the world around them and place their technology disciplines appropriately within relevant contexts. This understanding includes non-technical conceptual, social, historical, cultural and ethical framework material that students are able to apply to their technology disciplines.

The University's General Education Philosophy Statement

The role of UAT's general education offerings is to provide our students with the social, historical, cultural and ethical contexts needed to create socially relevant works using their learned technology. With curriculum spanning topics in the humanities, arts, mathematics and social and physical sciences, UAT's general education offerings meet widespread expectations of the undergraduate learning experience while at the same time bringing into clarity the profound connections and trends between humanity's development and technology.

Within these areas, UAT's general education provides topics that are uniquely reflective of points where the culture of technology is enhanced, and they are given meaning through its interactions with the arts and sciences. The result of taking part in the general education experience is to produce technology graduates who are globally informed, multifaceted thinkers who effectively integrate knowledge across disciplines in order to develop and articulate new ideas, systems and solutions.
