  • Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products.

This outcome is designed to help students recognize the value of a commitment to those responsibilities which will enable them to work successfully individually and with others.
