General Education Core Curriculum Requirements


The Leadership for Sustainable Communities (LSC) core is driven by its learning outcomes. LSC core learning outcomes are built on the premise that all graduates of Saint Joseph’s College of Maine (SJC) have the foundation to become leaders in creating a sustainable future. More specifically, we organize the LSC core learning outcomes around three areas:

  1. Development of Knowledge: Foundational Inquiry & Skills
  2. Sustainability of Communities and the Planet 
  3. Personal Growth & Professional Development

Moreover, the general education curriculum supports several of SJC’s Institutional Learning Outcomes.  Specifically:

  • Identify and apply the ethical and moral dimensions of their particular field of study;
  • Demonstrate effective communication skills in both written and oral formats;
  • Engage in responsible citizenship, social justice, and environmental stewardship;
  • Demonstrate critical thinking skills and the ability to analyze and evaluate information from diverse sources and perspectives.
