Program Outcomes

Program outcomes are overarching skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout several courses in a specific program; they are measurable statements that define what students should know or be able to do by the end of a certificate or degree at Clark College. After successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Identify and deconstruct the individual, institutional, and ideological systems of power, privilege and inequity.
  • Critically analyze one's own multiple identities within the context of power, privilege and inequity.
  • Critically examine and describe the social, political and historical construction of identity and difference with regard to sex, gender, race, class, sexuality, age, and ability.
