Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking: Reading, writing, thinking critically and analytically are valuable in any undertaking and every workplace. Thinking critically presupposes knowledge of a subject matter, makes us better citizens, and contributes to the richness of our lives.

  • Our disciplines are engaged in the teaching of critical thinking. We encourage students to examine everything they read, hear, see and do. Our students understand the importance of critically examining their own behavior and work.
  • Critical skills are valuable when done with respect, with a mind open to differing views and to change in the face of persuasive evidence and argument.
