Interim Dean's Welcome
Welcome to the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts!
Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts comprises six schools with faculty who produce cutting-edge research and offer instruction in 29 major degree programs for undergraduate and graduate students.
Ivan Allen College recognizes that the big global challenges facing us are at root human problems. Technology alone cannot solve them. The liberal arts offer the essential competencies, tools, and habits of mind that can move us toward solutions that are compassionate and equitable.
In addition to our liberal arts majors, the College is also proud that every Georgia Tech undergraduate student is an Ivan Allen student, because everyone takes courses in the liberal arts. Strong Georgia Tech liberal art means better equipped Georgia Tech alumni, whatever their major.
Ivan Allen also knows that technology and science are in everything we do. We are not a typical Liberal Arts college. Instead we produce research that speaks to technological and scientific problems and we graduate students who are able to provide socially responsible and ethical leadership in a world saturated with technology.
We welcome you to the College and hope that you will engage with us as we innovate new pathways in research, education, and public service that are shaping our future.
