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 isn't part of your major? Minor in ALPs!
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 "soft skills" employers seek than the average Oregon Tech student. If you want to develop these skills through a highly customizable minor with courses designed to parallel your major classes while also being valuable and enjoyable in their own right, then ALPs is for you!
ALPs is made up of courses in Arts, Literature, and Philosophy, and it allows you to chart your own 18-credit “route” to the minor’s “summit,” depending on your specific interests. Some subjects that previous ALPs graduates have focused on include:
- Visual Art
- Philosophy of Science
Or, you can complete the minor in whatever way you see fit, as long as you meet the General Requirements.
