Choose a Learning Outcome

Learning outcomes are statements focusing on what students will know and be able to do in their college education. They can address specific kinds of knowledge, skills and long-term attitudes and values.

 St. Edward’s emphasizes nine general kinds of learning outcomes in our general education curriculum: Critical Thinking, Global Learning, Moral Reasoning, Information Literacy, Social Justice, Written Communication, Oral Communication, Scientific Literacy and Quantitative Literacy. These learning outcomes are heavily influenced by the university’s mission statement, which stresses the analytical abilities and social responsibilities that will enable students to make long-lasting contributions to a rapidly changing world.
