All UI&U degrees and certificates
For new and returning students
Recognizing that students in higher education are expected to demonstrate learning, we have agreed that one distinguishing characteristic between baccalaureate education and doctoral education is that the doctoral candidate moves beyond thinking and acting to leading others in action. It is not enough that they produce original research; at UI&U they are expected to use that research to lead new action. These competencies reflect demonstration of learning and encouragement to act.
These learning outcomes apply to all doctoral programs at UI&U, but individual programs may extend them further or adjust for greater specificity.
Express and interpret ideas clearly, using a variety of written, oral and/or visual forms.
Use multiple modes of disciplinary and interdisciplinary inquiry to explore ideas and issues from multiple perspectives.
Express ethical & social implications in one’s social, professional, artistic and/or scholarly practice.
Articulate a perspective on power in the world and one’s own place in the global community.
Include learning outcomes that are specific to each doctoral program.
