Program Level Outcomes
Undergraduate program level outcomes define what students in each discipline will know and be able to do by the time they graduate from Drexel. The outcomes serve multiple purposes. They define the essential elements of success in a given program. They help faculty and administrators intentionally organize their courses and plan their curricula to support students’ efforts to accomplish the specified outcomes. They also serve as a guide and a promise to students that we will endeavor to help them accomplish the outcomes of their program.
In order to be compliant with Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) guidelines, Drexel publishes its undergraduate program level outcomes online. These outcomes are available for anyone to view, including potential students who can use the outcomes to decide if a program is a good fit for them. As part of the University’s regular business practices, academic programs review their program level outcomes on an annual basis, and are able to update them every October. The Assessment Group in the Office of Institutional Research, Assessment and Effectiveness collects and publishes the outcomes.
The Criminal Justice Program is featured in this edition of the Quality Improvement Quarterly. Those who are interested in learning more about the program can read their recently updated program level outcomes.
