Foundations

Fundamental to every student’s success in college and beyond is competency in four areas that provide the foundation for lifelong learning and for personal and professional effectiveness. These areas are mathematical analysis, communication, critical thinking, and computer competence, including information literacy. The University recognizes the importance of continuing development in these areas in the context of the student’s major. The target level of competency in these areas will be determined and assessed by the major in which the student is enrolled. Following is a brief explanation of the importance of each foundation area with suggested courses that might satisfy the requirement.
