SECTION TWO: LEARNING OUTCOMES


For each of the AKA undergraduate core curricular elements described above it is important to identify clearly stated learning outcomes. A sample set of learning outcomes that are consistent with the AKA Core Curricular elements were developed by an AKA working group. These learning outcomes are intended to serve as exemplars of possible learning outcomes. Individual departments are free to adopt these outcomes, modify them, or develop their own.

    This information is provided to allow AKA departments to compare their own curriculum with those at similar institutions.
