Curriculum, Outcomes, and Assessment
Institutional Student Learning Outcomes:
The General Studies Program and Assessment of all Outcomes, Spring 2012
The General Studies Program of General Studies Requirements (GSR) courses was established in 2007 as a response to calls for reform of the General Education curricular design at Gallaudet. The mission statement of the GSR curriculum states that the program is designed to "provide a rigorous academic program that prepares students for successful learning in a complex world where traditional academic disciplines are interrelating, merging, and overlapping." The program provides students with a high-quality sequence of coursework intended to prepare them for their chosen majors, for life-long learning, and for challenging careers. The General Studies program begins with Freshman Foundations (GSR 100-level courses), continues with Integrated Courses (interdisciplinary GSR 200-level courses) and concludes with a Capstone Course (GSR 300).
