Academic Learning Compacts

The Florida Board of Governors has mandated that the public universities in Florida develop an Academic Learning Compact for each baccalaureate degree program that they offer. The Compacts identify the expected core student learning outcomes for degree program graduates in the areas of communication skills, content/discipline knowledge and skills, and critical thinking skills. Students should acquire these skills if they follow the prescribed course of study in their declared major.

Students in the Department of Psychology should expect to participate in a number of activities associated with the Compacts throughout their undergraduate career such as answering embedded questions in scheduled exams, enrolling in a capstone course, writing research papers or sitting for a specialized exam. The specific Academic Learning Compact expecations for the Department of Psychology are linked below.
