A list of the institution level sustainability learning outcomes:
The general education component of an Emory undergraduate education from the College of Arts & Sciences is organized to present an array of intellectual approaches and perspectives as ways of learning rather than a prescribed body of content. Its purposes are to develop students’ competencies in the skills and methods of writing, quantitative methods, a second language, and physical education; to acquaint students with methodologies that characterize the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences as the three broad divisions of learning in the arts and sciences; to deepen students’ perspectives on national, regional, and global history and culture, and to give every student some exposure to an interactive seminar experience. These purposes are met by a student’s choosing from a range of individual courses within a clearly defined framework. GERs for the reporting period are below: * First-Year Seminar Classes (FSEM) Courses - Area I * First-Year Writing Requirement (FWRT) Courses - Area II * Continuing Writing (WRT) Courses - Area III * Math & Quantitative Reasoning (MQR) Courses - Area IV * Science, Nature, Technology (SNT) Courses - Area V * History, Society, Cultures (HSC) Courses - Area VI * Humanities, Arts, Performance (HAP) Courses - Area VII * Humanities, Arts, Language (HAL) Courses - Area VII * Personal Health (HTH) Courses - Area VIII * Physical Education and Dance (PED) Courses - Area IX Courses within the Science, Nature, Technology; and History, Society, Cultures GERs are majority "sustainability-focused" with some "sustainability-supportive" courses as well. http://catalog.college.emory.edu/academic/ger/snt.php http://catalog.college.emory.edu/academic/ger/hsc.php In the Rollins School of Public Health, all professional degree students must demonstrate an understanding of the public health core knowledge. Through the core curriculum, students experience an ecological approach to public health and understand the social, economic, cultural and environmental conditions that influence human health. https://www.sph.emory.edu/academics/competencies/index.html
