For a list of courses and their corresponding Program Pathway, please see Subjects and their related Program Pathway.

It is essential that the CSLOs for every course within a Program Pathway are aligned with their corresponding PSLOs.  The process of aligning CSLOs to PSLOs is done through eLumen, and detailed instructions are on the OAC eLumen webpage.
