Student Learning Outcomes Statements
Student learning outcomes statements clearly state the expected knowledge, skills, attitudes, competencies, and habits of mind that students are expected to acquire at an institution of higher education.
General Education Competencies
At the Undergraduate level, Temple has established 8 core competencies for General Education. These 8 core competencies serve as the student learning outcomes for the General Education Program. In order to achieve these competencies, all undergraduate students at Temple complete the GenEd curriculum, which consists of 11 courses in 9 different learning areas.
