College-Wide Learning Goals

We believe that all Lake Forest College graduates should be able to:

  • Demonstrate understanding of a broad range of 21st century approaches to knowledge production by engaging with key concepts, theories, and methods across the breadth of the liberal arts: Creative and Performing Arts, Humanities, Natural Sciences, Quantitative Reasoning, and Social Sciences.
  • Demonstrate a deep understanding of at least one academic field, including its methods of inquiry, technological tools, and traditions of scholarship, through the completion of a major program of study that culminates in a capstone experience integrating content and methods within that field.
  • Locate, synthesize, and evaluate multiple and possibly divergent sources of information, thereby demonstrating the ability to think critically.
  • Communicate clearly and persuasively when writing and speaking.
  • Appreciate differences in social and cultural experience both within the United States and globally.
  • Apply knowledge and skills in a purposeful and reflective way to experiences outside the classroom.
