The Sixth College Core Sequence on Culture, Art, and Technology (CAT) gives students an opportunity to learn about the conventions of academic writing and to consider the factors that lead to technological, cultural, and artistic change.
The sequence consists of three quarters of lecture—fall, winter, and spring—with accompanying discussion sections. Writing instruction is integrated into the curriculum and is not offered as a stand-alone course in Sixth College.
Each quarter we offer a selection of interdisciplinary courses, which take varying approaches to culture, art, and technology.
Students in CAT learn through a combination of lectures, discussions, questions, readings, guest speakers, hands-on activities, writing assignments, and multimedia projects. Sixth College offers a learning environment that extends beyond the classroom and emphasizes teamwork, critical thinking, close reading, pattern recognition, and creative approaches to problems, drawing on models and methods from a variety of fields.
