General Education Requirements

The purpose of the general education program is to initiate, develop, demonstrate, and integrate Lindenwood’s Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs), with emphasis on ILOs 1, 2, and 3. (Emphasis on ILO 4 occurs primarily within the major and minor programs.) The Lindenwood ILOs are fully aligned with leading frameworks of essential 21st-century qualifications and serve to prepare the graduate, regardless of major, for personal success in a world of increasing complexity, innovation, and change.

ILO-1 Lindenwood graduates have broad, integrative, and specialized knowledge.

ILO-2 Lindenwood graduates have essential habits of mind.

ILO-3 Lindenwood graduates have communicative fluency.

ILO-4 Lindenwood graduates have effective problem-solving skills.
