The milestone experience orients students to the expected learning outcomes of their major field(s) of study and reinforces the UULOs.

All milestone experiences especially reinforce the (i) Inquiry and Critical Thinking and (ii) Communication UULOs within the context of the major.

Each college and department is currently in the process of identifying and implementing a Milestone Experience for their majors. Milestone Experiences may take the form of one of the following:

  • A single course
  • Components of multiple courses
  • Defined assessable outcomes of a major field of study

Students should complete the milestone experience in their sophomore or junior year.

Please see departmental catalogs or web-site listings for major-specific information about the Milestone Experience.
