General Education Categories and Outcomes by Courses

Approved as of 09/18/2018

All general education courses are approved by the Senate Committee on Educational Policy (SCEP) to teach certain general education categories and learning outcomes. The general education categories includes: Analyzing the Natural World, Understanding the Individual and Society, Understanding the Past, Understanding the Creative Arts, Exploring World Cultures, and Understanding U.S. Society. Each category specifies 4-7 learning outcomes, which describe knowledge, skills, and abilities students should obtain upon completion of general education courses. For more information on the UIC General Education Program, please follow this link: GenEd Proficiencies

Each semester, UIC randomly samples general education courses, allowing selected instructors to share how they have helped students to learn general education outcomes and how their students have achieved the outcomes in their courses.
