School of Arts & Sciences

http://citytech.cuny.edu/saas/

The School of Arts and Sciences plays two important roles. It is home to a number of majors: transfer degrees in Liberal Arts and Liberal Arts and Science, associate degrees in computer science and chemical technology, and the baccalaureate degree in applied mathematics. Just as importantly, faculty in the School provide all City Tech students with courses that support a relevant and well-rounded general education, helping to make City Tech graduates effective professionals, informed citizens, and lifelong learners.

African American Studies

http://citytech.cuny.edu/african-studies/

The African American Studies Department is designed to bring into disciplinary focus, through inter-departmental and multicultural course offerings in Liberal Arts and Sciences, the history and culture of Africans and their descendants, throughout the diaspora from antiquity to the present.

Readings and classroom lectures bring research, critical analysis, synthesis, and interpretation to bear on the contributions of peoples of African descent to the genesis and the development of human civilization. African American Studies is fundamentally concerned with the stimulation of intellectual growth and the development of humanist principles.

Humanities

http://citytech.cuny.edu/humanities/

The Humanities Department maintains a unique position within our college of technology. The department offers courses in art history, communication, world languages, music, and theatre, providing students with laboratories for creative expression, cultural and historical understanding, and practical toolsets for work and living. These enriching competencies help students appreciate multiple perspectives and synthesize ideas, ultimately laying the groundwork for a sense of possibility and a clearer recognition of an individual’s place in society.

Our courses complement the study of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and human services. The integration of the arts and communication studies into a general education curriculum produces demonstrably positive results in academic performance. By engaging with the humanities, students become more deeply invested in learning, cultivate a sensitivity to cultural diversity, think more critically, and develop superior problem-solving and entrepreneurial skills.

Physics

http://citytech.cuny.edu/physics/

Physics is an essential component in the education of a scientifically literate individual in an advanced society. The study of physics gives the student an opportunity to learn the fundamental theories that will be needed to explore how the world functions as well as the discoveries behind technological advances.

The department offers courses in physics, astronomy, and general science where students develop an appreciation and understanding of nature and the underlying laws which govern our universe. Coursework develops comprehension of basic physical principles, competence in using logical procedures in problem-solving, and an awareness of historical advances and future potential in the field of science.
