Student Learning Outcomes

At Hood College, we are committed to teaching excellence.

Program goals and learning outcomes identify what we expect students to learn, think critically about and accomplish in their courses and programs of study at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. We believe an integrated learning approach that combines a strong grounding in the liberal arts with advanced study in the major and opportunities for internships and research initiatives is the best way to prepare students for lives of purpose and civic engagement. 

In addition to program goals and learning outcomes, college competencies have been developed for both the undergraduate and graduate level students.
