Knowledge

Statement of the Competency: to think critically about the knowledge process. Students who successfully complete the KNOWLEDGE course in Humanities should be able to:

  • Recognize basic elements of a field of knowledge through processes of identification, evaluation, analysis and synthesis
  • See how assumptions, questions, concepts,theories and methods constitute a field of knowledge
  • Identify, reconstruct, evaluate and produce arguments, and synthesize ideas
  • Situate a field of knowledge within its historical context
  • Organize and synthesize elements of a field of knowledge into a coherent pattern

The KNOWLEDGE course invites students to step back and reflect in a critical manner on the processes by which knowledge in various fields can be attained. Students learn and develop skills in identification, evaluation, analysis and synthesis in order to address such questions as: “What do I know?” and “How do I know something is true?”
