Michigan Tech’s College of Sciences and Arts offers truly exciting, even unique undergraduate and graduate programs (30 degrees and 36 minors) consistent with being a “technological university.” Of course there are STEM programs in the physical, natural and life sciences, mathematics and statistics, computer science, and software engineering, but do you know there are programs in the arts, humanities, and social and behavioral science programs such as sound design, applied cognitive psychology and human factors, teacher certifications, environmental policy, and scientific and technical communication that are equally at home in a “technological university”?
