Can Art be a Competency Builder? That is How Exposure to Art Shapes the
Perception of Desired Qualities of a Technical Graduate
The purpose of this paper is an attempt to determine the influence of public art on changing the attitudes of spatial management students at the Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences (WUELS), regarding the desired characteristics of a graduate. The research hypothesis assumes a significant evolution of views on this topic under the influence of exposure to works of public art. The results confirm the advisability of changes in the Spatial Economy study program at WUELS aimed at a broader inclusion of Arts and Culture elements.
