The Taylor program is truly unique. You can go nowhere else to get a liberal arts education and add the systems component to it.
The genius of the Taylor systems curriculum lies in its being complementary to a strong liberal arts education at a Christan university that has been ranked number one in the midwest six times by U.S. News and World Report.
Become a Change Agent!
Change is very often difficult for those affected by it. Because liberal arts at Taylor is steeped in Christian theology and ethics, you will be better able to effect change in a way that considers the needs and aspirations of people and glorifies God. The systems curriculum is all about making the world better.
The systems curriculum trains you how to recognize and analyze systems, improve existing ones, and develop new ones. The liberal arts foundation helps you “connect the dots”; you will be a strong conceptual thinker, able to synthesize ideas into new solutions. You will become a change agent after you graduate.
Get Real-World Experience
You will be given the opportunity to analyze the needs of a real client (often a mission organization) and propose a solution. In a subsequent course you can actually build the solution. For example, one class built an information system for HCJB World Radio to help them plan and track the installation of radio studios and transmission sites to broadcast the gospel worldwide.
In general, you should study systems because you will better understand the world around you; especially how organizations work. You will become a stronger employee and leader as you understand how to make decisions quantitatively and solve problems with technology.
