Outcome: Students will identify, evaluate, and interpret major aesthetic and philosophical movements, and assess their impact on the environment and society.
The university's general education curriculum develops students' knowledge and skills related to the humanities primarily through selected courses in the arts, literature, and philosophy. The university gathers data for assessing students' knowledge and skills from these courses each year. (In addition, the university also reviews data from majors that assess relevant knowledge and skills.)
The rubric was developed in the fall of 2010 by representatives of humanities departments and was designed primarily for use in the larger enrollment introductory courses that most students use to satisfy the general education requirements. For questions about the rubric or its use, please contact Ray Heffner by email or at extension 2151.
