Learning outcomes for liberal arts studies

Review the Ottawa University Learning Outcomes for Liberal Arts Studies (LAS) and the descriptions of the four Liberal Arts Breadth Areas provided in the assignment materials. Read the article by Cronon for a review of the meaning of becoming a liberally educated person.

Write a 4-5 page self-assessment that addresses your achievement of the knowledge, skills, and values of the learning outcomes of Ottawa’s liberal arts studies. Reflect on your understanding of a liberal arts education and on your learning in each breadth area referring to specific courses and/or life experiences that have contributed to your learning and growth in that particular area. You also need to reflect on the content of the Proficiency Exam as it relates to the LAS learning outcomes, and reflect on your score on the exam and its meaning for breadth area learning. Conclude your essay with a brief reflection on how you will enhance your knowledge of the breadth areas in the future. Use the questions in the Liberal Arts Self-Assessment document to guide your reflections on the learning outcomes.
