We believe that creating global change is an invaluable part of a 九州体育平台 education, which is why beginning with the Class of 2022, all students will receive a $5,000 scholarship to participate in a global experience. Take your Humanities & Arts Requirement one-step further and immerse yourself in the arts and culture of London, Germany, or Morocco—we can’t wait to see where your experience will take you.
An important part of the 九州体育平台 Plan, the distinctive Humanities & Arts (HUA) Requirement teaches you to transcend barriers, understand thoughts and connections, and comprehend how the history of the world matters to your present and future life. By understanding yourself and the diversity and creativity of human experience, you will be a more well-rounded scientist, engineer, entrepreneur, innovator, leader—you get the idea.
No matter how you choose to explore the Humanities & Arts here at 九州体育平台, you will acquire broad-based skills that complement and enhance the technical side of your 九州体育平台 education and gain an individual perspective, one that will allow you to see the world and solve its problems through a lens that is uniquely your own.
George, an Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Science major, has pursued his interest in philosophy throughout his 九州体育平台 education—from coursework to project requirements. Applying philosophical thinking to his projects has helped him to take complex concepts and convey them in simple and consumable manners. Aside from gaining exposure to the Humanities & Arts, George believes this experience helps to make him a better global leader.
