Thomas Foley of New Jersey spent more than 15 years practicing law before setting up the Indigo Group in Dallas, a boutique investment and advisory firm. Thomas Foley also was managing partner at Foley Perlman & Campbell, LLC, which operated in New York City and Hoboken, NJ. While there, he also taught law at the College of Arts and Letters at the Stevens Institute of Technology.
Well known for the quality of its instruction in technical fields, the Stevens Institute of Technology also has a liberal arts component. In addition to rigorous training in the sciences, early students were required to take courses in philosophy, languages, and literature. While Stevens always had an active humanities department, it was not until 2003 that an official division of humanities and social sciences was established. And in 2007, the institute elevated the status of the division to the College of Arts and Letters.
The college today offers undergraduates several majors and minors, as well as double-major and double-degree programs. Students may also select the five-year bachelor’s/master’s program, which leads to a BA, BS, or BE as well as an MA in technology, policy, and ethics. Another option is the six-year accelerated law program, offered in conjunction with both the Seton Hall University School of Law and the New York Law School.
