UNIT ASSESSMENT REPORT FOR GENERAL EDUCATION (UNIVERSITY STUDIES) FOR 2005-2006
UNIVERSITY STUDIES COMPETENCIES
To graduate with a bachelor degree, Spalding University requires undergraduate students to fulfill 55 credits hours in the humanities, natural sciences
and mathematics, social sciences, religious studies, and communication. To graduate with an associate degree, the required number of credit hours in
these areas of study is 34. These general education requirements comprise the University Studies component of all undergraduate degree programs.
In keeping with Spalding University’s long tradition, rigorous study across and within the academic disciplines fosters a commitment to life-long
learning, service, and the promotion of peace and justice among students and faculty. University Studies courses are designed to give students
opportunities to practice habits of mind and heart that emphasize the joy of discovery, animate the creative intellect, and promote the development of
personal and intellectual competencies needed for success in any chosen profession.
To this end, students will evidence the ability to:
• Think critically;
• Communicate effectively using oral, visual, and written skills;
• Comprehend social issues from different perspectives such as literary, artistic, historical, cultural, philosophical, scientific, global, political,
technological, and economic;
• Use scientific and mathematical skills to solve problems;
• Demonstrate effective interpersonal skills; and
• Understand one’s personal values and religious beliefs and respect those of others.
