Learning Through Our Education System

Students who add the systems curriculum to their degree strengthen their analytical, technical, and critical thinking skills by taking classes on the four themes of systems: analysis, information technology, quality management, and operations.

They also learn to draw connections between their majors’ disciplines and the systems encompassing them, whether it’s art, mathematics, psychology, philosophy, computer science, engineering, Christian ministries, or something else entirely.
