Life Sciences Program Learning Goals

Program Goals, Learning Objectives and Assessment of Student Learning

The Life Sciences Program at the University of Wyoming provides a grounding in the biological sciences for all life science majors on campus, as well as service courses for non-science majors. The program curriculum extends from the 1000 to 3000-level. Within the life science majors, each individual degree program determines the extent to which they rely on the Life Sciences Program curriculum to begin the training of their students.

The goal of the Life Sciences Program curriculum is to expose students to four key areas:

  • Acquisition, Application and Synthesis of Knowledge
  • Communication Skills
  • Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
  • Research Skills

Courses within the Life Sciences Program curriculum will address these goals at the appropriate level. Learning outcomes developed by course instrcutors (coming soon) will be related to the number of program courses the students complete. Students who only complete a portion of the courses within the program will begin their education towards these learning outcomes, but will not necessarily master each.
