Student Learning Outcomes

From Classroom to Career: Concordia University Texas Prepares Students for Success through its Four Student Learning Outcomes

At Concordia University Texas, we believe that our graduates should be well-rounded individuals who possess skills that will help them succeed in their chosen vocations, and in life in general. That's why we've developed Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) that focus on four essential areas: Communication, Critical Thinking, Career, and Community.

Critical Thinking

Our liberal arts education provides a strong foundation for our students to think critically and creatively, with instruction and class sizes that encourage hands-on, interactive, and participatory learning experiences.
