Jackie Royster writes about the College's approach to academics
A vibrant learning community, Georgia Tech's Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts Ivan Allen is renowned for innovative interdisciplinary studies that explore science, technology, and computing through the lens of the humanities and social sciences, and for our rigorous graduate and professional programs.
Faculty and students engage locally, nationally, and globally to explore complex-problems, to define their impact on society, culture, and policy, and to innovate solutions to better our world. It is a challenging and exciting intellectual environment that helps students define themselves and focus their future.
Students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty, all of whom teach, and many of whom are engaged in ground-breaking, interdisciplinary research. A number of our academic programs are internationally recognized as models for liberal arts education in a technological age.
Faculty & Program Leadership in an Extraordinary Range of Fields
Our students acquire Georgia Tech technical expertise and a liberal arts perspective. They are trained to manage information, design and plan projects, communicate clearly, think critically, and work effectively in teams across disciplines and cultures.
