Degrees & Programs of Study

Degree Outcomes

Introductory experiences in three areas of learning (Communication, Thinking Critically and Comprehensively, and Applying Knowledge to Workplace and Community) are provided in the General Education curriculum and elective courses and extended through the program to the integrative capstone experience.
