Learning Outcomes

By the end of their course of study, University Honors students should be able to:

    1. Demonstrate a deep, rich knowledge of the historical, philosophical, theological, and literary developments of Western civilization and apply that knowledge insightfully to the study of global issues.
    2. Demonstrate in critical essays, oral presentations, and seminar discussions an ability to integrate, analyze, and respond to complex texts and issues by using the critical vocabulary, interpretive methodologies, and theoretical perspectives of different disciplines.
    3. Demonstrate the skills of attentive listening, effective communicating, and reflective thinking so that they can be helpful consultants when evaluating the work of others, self-critical when evaluating their own work, and capable of acting as leaders in their fields of study and beyond.
    4. Apply their synthesized study of the "big questions" about meaning and value to their own lives and circumstances through reflective writing and speaking.
    5. Demonstrate in both study and practice the commitment of critical inquiry to ethical engagement and just action.
