Florida Poly students can now pursue an Applied Liberal Studies Certificate along with their chosen STEM degree. This 12-credit concentration focuses on expanding students’ foundations in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Research shows that increased study in these areas improves written and oral communication skills, enhances creativity and critical thinking, prepares effective managers and leaders, and raises lifetime earnings.

Consider the certificate when registering for classes. The following Spring 2020 courses will count toward the certificate:

  • AMH 2010: US History to 1877
  • AMH 2020: US History since 1877
  • AMH 2930: Business, Advertising & Consumerism in US History
  • HUM 2020: Introduction to Humanities
  • LIT 2000: Introduction to Literature (new course)
  • HIS 3930: Special Topics in History—Science and Technology

For more information regarding the certificate, contact Dr. C. Wylie Lenz (chair of the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Department) via email or in IST 2005.
