Informing the future: New worlds of possibility at the intersection of humanity and technology

Lewis College of Human Sciences houses the Departments of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Psychology at Illinois Institute of Technology. We have ten undergraduate programs, four master's degree programs, and two Ph.D. programs. Why study humanities or social sciences at a technology-focused university?

At Lewis, you'll approach your chosen field as a scientist with an investigative, discerning eye. Social consciousness is at the heart of our programs, and we emphasize the free spirit and broad perspectives traditionally reserved for the liberal arts. After Lewis, you'll be offering what today's employers most urgently seek: a smart employee and excellent problem solver.

“Technology alone is not enough—it’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our heart sing.” –Steve Jobs
