Why Lawrence Tech?
As a technological university, Lawrence Tech is in a unique position to offer you exposure to disciplines that you may not encounter in a traditional liberal arts college setting. Familiarity with disciplines such as architecture and design, management, the sciences, and engineering in combination with the traditional humanities will give you a distinct advantage in today's technologically driven job market. In addition to your formal academic preparation, you'll have opportunities to participate in artistic, literary, and dramatic productions with Lawrence Tech's student arts organization, the Artists' Guild, which also produces the student-edited literary and arts journal, Prism, and the Society of Dramatic Arts. In keeping with Lawrence Tech's hallmark blending of theory and practice, you will work closely with your advisor to obtain two internships tailored to your interests. One during your sophomore year, and the other during your senior year, these internships provide you valuable hands-on experience in companies and organizations in need of employees with strong oral and written communication skills.
A Foundation You Can Build Upon
Lawrence Tech's English and communication arts program consists of foundational university courses as well as required courses in a foreign language, which increase linguistic and cultural sensitivity, and in-depth study in literature, philosophy, history, and the social sciences. The English and communication arts degree provides for nine hours of electives, allowing you to take courses in one or more of the professional colleges on campus.
