What is ALPs?
Are you frustrated because you want to take more of those fun art, literature, or philosophy classes but don’t because it doesn’t fit your major?
With an ALPs minor, you'll leave Oregon Tech with the critical thinking and communication abilities required to be a global citizen and lifelong learner. You'll also have a much better grasp of the skills employers seek than the average Oregon Tech student. If you want to improve these skills through a program of courses designed to parallel your major classes while also being valuable and enjoyable in their own right, then ALPs is for you!
ALPs is an 18-credit minor built around courses in Arts, Literature, and Philosophy, and it allows you to chart your own route to the "summit," depending on your specific interests. Currently, there are five suggested tracks:
- Digital Technology and Culture
- Philosophy of Science/Logic.
Or, you can complete the minor in whatever way you see fit, making your own unique route.
