Program Outcomes
Program outcomes are overarching skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout several courses in a specific program; they are measurable statements that define what students should know or be able to do by the end of a certificate or degree at Clark College. After successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
  • Apply scientific methodologies to develop and answer questions about the natural world.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the derivative as an instantaneous rate of change and the definite integral as a limit of a sum.
  • Analyze and solve multi-step problems using techniques through single-variable calculus.
  • Acquire scientific information from appropriate sources to analyze issues, claims or situations.
  • Apply a method of scientific inquiry, valid to the natural sciences, to evaluate claims about the natural world. (GE)
  • Articulate well-considered ideas and written claims to an academic audience, using effective rhetorical techniques, properly credited evidence, and a command of Standard English. (GE)
  • Demonstrate progress toward healthier behaviors. (GE)
  • Interpret the human experience, within appropriate global and historical contexts, through evaluation, analysis, creation, or performance. (GE)
  • Obtain, evaluate, and ethically use information. (GE)
  • Analyze patterns of power, privilege, and inequity in the United States. (GE)
  • Evaluate, analyze, and explain events, behaviors, and institutions using perspectives and methods in the Social Sciences. (GE)
  • Apply communication theory to demonstrate effective oral communication skills.(GE)
  • Demonstrate and clearly explain an effective strategy to solve a quantitative problem. (GE)
