Human Sciences with a Focus on Tech
Technology is playing an increasingly larger role in shaping how we look at our world, what we do and how we do it. Human sciences enable us to explore and explain what is happening as technology re-shapes the real and virtual places in which we live, work, and play. The methods we use are evidence-based, helping us sort out opinion from information, fad from fact.
Our university focus on science and technology will support you to develop valuable skills - including research, data analysis, communications and critical thinking. At Lewis, you will receive personalized attention from our renowned faculty, whose main focus is your success.
