During the Spring 2019 General Education Assemblies for Learning Outcomes, faculty groups began to develop learning outcomes for the Culture Studies Requirements. Then, smaller working groups digested the information from the Assemblies and created draft learning outcomes which were then made available on this website for campus comments. The comments were taken into consideration by both the General Education Board and the Council for Learning Outcomes Assessment, resulting in the draft learning outcomes for Cultural Studies overall listed below.
After taking a course in Cultural Studies, students will be able to:
- Foundations: Explain how culture involves the interaction among the intellectual, artistic, political, economic, and social aspects of a society or other cultural grouping.
- Context: Describe how topics and issues can vary depending on the culture(s) focused upon.
- Application: Analyze and communicate about the interaction of intellectual, artistic, political, economic, social, and other aspects of a society’s cultural life through an investigation of a particular time and place, aspects of a society’s or group’s culture, or comparison of the constructs for cross-cultural sensitivity and analysis.
