McGill Undergraduate Learning Outcomes

What is the purpose of an undergraduate education? What knowledge and skills do McGill students need to prepare them for the future? What is distinctive about the McGill experience?

These are just some of the questions being explored by the Undergraduate Learning Outcomes working group, and we want your input! (Survey link coming soon)

The McGill community is engaging in a conversation about undergraduate education to move towards a set of agreed-upon learning outcomes. These would be aspirational and individual programs would tailor them to their specific contexts.

Learning outcomes can be broadly defined as the qualities, skills, and understandings that students should develop while at university. These outcomes will shape their future personal, professional, and social contributions to the world.

Making the outcomes of an undergraduate education explicit creates an integrated vision for learning at McGill that reflects a student’s entire educational experience, both inside and outside the classroom.
