General Education Learning Outcomes

Through the Common Curriculum, students will develop the breadth of knowledge and flexibility of mind needed to participate in meaningful academic, community, and global conversations informed by the Liberal Arts.  They will do so by achieving these learning outcomes:

  1. Communicate Critical and Analytical Thinking.  Students will examine and evaluate evidence, data, artifacts, arguments, and theories according to the diverse analytical traditions of the Liberal Arts; students will communicate clearly and persuasively the results of such analysis.
  2. Make Original Connections or Contributions.  Students will make original connections or contributions to academic, community, or global questions through their writings, theories, designs, objects of art, or other innovative projects.
  3. Reflective Learning.  Students will demonstrate the ability to link their experiences in the Common Curriculum with their intellectual development as lifelong learners.
