  • Effective oral communication:  capacity to deliver prepared,  purposeful  presentations
    designed  to increase knowledge, to foster understanding, or to promote  change  in the listeners' attitudes, values,  beliefs, or behaviors.
[ ]
  • Effective written  communication: development and expression of ideas in writing
     through  work in many genres  and styles,  utilizing different writing  technologies, and mixing texts, data, and images through  iterative experiences across the curriculum.
[ ]
  • . Critical  thinking:  a habit of mind characterized by the comprehensive exploration of issues,  ideas, artifacts,  and events  before accepting  or formulating an opinion  or conclusion.
[ ]
  • Problem  solving:  capacity  to design,  evaluate, and implement a strategy  to answer an open-ended question  or achieve  a desired goal.
[ ]
  • Intercultural knowledge and competence: a set of cognitive,  affective, and behavioral
    skills and characteristics that support  effective and appropriate interaction in a variety of cultural  contexts.
[ ]
  • Information literacy:  the ability  to know when there is a need for information, to be able
     to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively and responsibly use and share that information for the problem  at hand.
[X]
  • .Foundations and skills  for life-long  learning:  purposeful  learning activity,  undertaken on an ongoing  basis with the aim of improving knowledge, skills, and competence.
[ ]
  • Quantitative Reasoning:  ability to reason and solve quantitative problems  from a wide
     array of authentic  contexts and everyday  life situations;  comprehends and can create sophisticated arguments supported  by quantitative evidence  and can clearly communicate those arguments in a variety of formats.
