heuristics, design & technology
What is it?
Heuristics is the practice of discovery, understanding and problem solving. Through the Bachelor of Arts in Heuristics, Design, and Technology degree, you will develop key cognitive skills for entering a 21st century workforce, particularly by improving your creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication skills.
How you will learn
Courses are project-based and interdisciplinary, and rely significantly on partnerships within the community. It’s innovative and it’s about innovation.
This degree program aims to build on New Tech Network programs, which are becoming increasingly popular in area high schools, and to strengthen the liberal arts emphasis already evident at Huntington University.
As a heuristics student, you will study such courses as “Economic Development and Community Sustainability” which will explore the tensions between those two subject areas by bringing together perspectives from business, environmental science and public policy; and “Visualizing Complexity” which is about learning to tell stories with data through a visual language. You will also be encouraged to complement your heuristics degree with minor or a double major from any area on campus.
A 21st century graduate
Upon graduation, you will have the skills necessary to enter a project-based work environment.
