Student Learning Outcomes

The Sociology Department has established three Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) for students who obtain a BA in Sociology. 

  1. Students will be able to evaluate sociological theories and use them to analyze and understand aspects of the social world.
  2. Students will be able to collect, analyze, and interpret data, and draw valid conclusions from their analyses.
  3. Students will have clear and effective verbal and written communication skills.

Students' mastery of the Sociology Department's SLOs is an important contribution to fulfilling the Mānoa Institutional Learning Objectives
