Sixth College's Culture, Art and Technology Program at the University of California, San Diego is committed to building an excellent and diverse faculty, staff, and student body, and invites applications from candidates whose experience has prepared them to contribute to our commitment.
The Culture, Art and Technology Program is part of UCSD's Sixth College Academic Programs. It encompasses the lower-division core sequence of freshman writing classes, an upper-division writing course, and the college's experiential learning requirement or Practicum. The lower- division sequence is required for all first-year students and is an interdisciplinary exploration of how aspects of human culture shape and mediate our interactions with our environment and with each other. Entering students will enroll in CAT 1, 2, and 3 in the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters (respectively) of their first year. The upper division writing requirement, CAT 125, is a class in public rhetoric and practical communication that prepares students for success beyond UCSD by developing their proficiency in public presentation. The Practicum is an upper-division general education requirement unique to Sixth College; students complete a course that has an experiential, service-learning, or community-based component to its curriculum.
