Miami Dade College prides itself on its variety of programs and degrees offered, as well as the diversity of its student population. While each student has his/her own specific major and career interests, the College faculty has identified 10 Learning Outcomes that reflect skills and knowledge that allow students not only to succeed in their chosen field, but also to enable them to be lifelong learners. These skills are attained through course completion and participation in co-curricular learning experiences offered at the College. 

What are the Learning Outcomes?

Specifically, The College Learning Outcomes allow students to develop lifelong skills in each of the following ten areas:


  1. Communication
  2. Quantitative Analysis
  3. Critical/Creative Thinking and Scientific Reasoning
  4. Information Literacy
  5. Global, Cultural, and Historical Perspectives
  6. Personal, Civic, and Social Responsibility
  7. Ethical Thinking
  8. Computer and Technology Usage
  9. Aesthetic Appreciation
  10. Natural Systems and the Environment
