The English Department faculty members have established Student Learning Outcomes for all our courses. SLOs are our expectations of the knowledge and skills students will demonstrate upon successful completion of our courses.

We have also designated a more general outcome for all those who plan to graduate with an AA or AA-T in English:

“Students will demonstrate the ability to use critical thinking skills to analyze, question, and understand their relationship to intellectual and social traditions.”
