ACHIEVING EXCELLENCE IN The honors program      

Cultivating an engaged citizen is a seminal goal of the W.E.B. Du Bois Scholars Program.  As a scholar, you will grow to understand the importance of becoming a citizen of the world by engaging in multiple leadership opportunities and academic research that result in a thesis or creative project.  The Honors curriculum emphasizes and cultivates skills designed to help scholars achieve excellence, both within the chosen major and through the Honors Contract coursework.  As a scholar, you are required to commit to each of the following "Learning Goals and Outcomes" throughout as you pursue higher education at LOC:

 

  • CRITICAL AND CREATIVE THINKING

You will demonstrate your ability to think critically and creatively by checking assumptions in your work and in the work of others. You will learn to listen effectively and consider multiple perspectives.

 

  • COMMUNICATION

You will write and speak effectively using appropriate oral, written, and visual means for each audience. You will become proficient in a second spoken language.

 

  • INFORMATION LITERACY

You will learn to use multiple databases in the LOC Library and critically evaluate the information you access to complete projects, reports, and presentations.

 

  • SCIENTIFIC LITERACY

You will develop a basic understanding of major scientific concepts that relate to important international topics.

 

  • QUANTITATIVE AND SYMBOLIC REASONING

You will apply quantitative tools to solve problems and use symbolic representations to explain and draw conclusions.

 

  • CULTURAL COMPETENCY

You will gain an appreciation of other cultures and value systems, and learn how your own values shape your inquiry and actions.

 

  • INTEGRATION OF KNOWLEDGE

You will complete a capstone project using the appropriate methodology and theoretical framework that will include design, synthesis, and interdisciplinary research.
