College of Applied Science and Technology

Department of Applied General and Technical Studies

Our applied and technical courses provide students with a comprehensive, flexible, liberal arts education. A large selection of general education courses in English, mathematics, and the social sciences also provides a solid foundation for every degree or career. Students who take our courses learn how to analyze information, formulate solutions, and communicate clearly and concisely.

The Department has a long history of hiring professors who focus on teaching and learning. As a result, its innovative faculty enhance classroom learning with special community projects, the use of multimedia technology, and/or activities that keep students engaged. The Department also honors its outstanding students and faculty every year at a spring semester reception in the Taylor Institute in the Polsky Building.
