Goal 5: Information Literacy, has several special requirements at the program level.
To ensure a breadth of exposure to information literacy, each degree program must include information literacy by having students complete a total of two information literacy core courses.
- The first information literacy core course must be English 101, which introduces the rudimentary elements of the research process.
- The second information literacy core course may be offered by the degree program or be drawn from information literacy core courses offered by other disciplines.
