Please see our database of Student Learning Outcomes for Undergraduate and Graduate Courses here. You will also find a tab on that page for Program Learning Outcomes for each degree program offered at UAS. [*May 2019 - the Provost's office is working on a streamlined system for updating Student Learning Outcomes at the end of the curricular cycle.]

Student Learning Outcomes are an important foundation for assuring academic quality. They are also essential to our UAS accreditation. Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) standards state that each course, degree, and program must have identified learning outcomes and that these outcomes must be published.

Student Learning Outcomes make clear what a student is expected to have mastered upon completion of a course or degree and help faculty colleagues teaching more advanced courses know what students have learned in foundation courses. Moreover, having published outcomes helps ensure that different sections of the same course—no matter where offered or how—have the same intended outcomes.

Identifying student learning outcomes falls within the purview of faculty.
