HU Launching New Program in Heuristics

Huntington University is launching a new innovative bachelor’s degree program in heuristics this fall.

Heuristics is the practice of discovery, understanding, and problem solving. The program’s goal is to develop key cognitive skills for students entering a 21st century workforce, particularly improving creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills.

The courses will be project-based and rely significantly on partnerships within the community.

The Bachelor of Arts in Heuristics, Design, and Technology degree also aims to build on New Tech Network programs, which are becoming increasingly popular in area high schools. New Tech Network schools teach students to think critically and to collaborate.

The new degree will launch in the 2012-2013 school year with courses such:

  • “Economic Development and Community Sustainability,” which will explore the tensions between those two subjects by bringing together perspectives from business, environmental science, and public policy.
  • “Visualizing Complexity,” which is about learning to tell stories with data through a visual language.
