Leadership. Innovation. Creativity.
Gain the Competitive Edge
“Soft skills” such as the ability to work with a team, use critical thinking and manage time efficiently are rated higher than “hard skills” such as having technical job-related knowledge or computer skills.
A degree program that addresses soft-skill development through leadership, innovation and creativity degree elements would likely increase the job market competitiveness of graduates who also hold complementary technical or professional knowledge.
UT Tyler applied arts and sciences courses support this approach.
