HUMN 201 - Critical Thinking

This optional course meets 3 credits of the required humanities elective and may be taken at any level. The course will approach critical thinking as a process by which one takes charge of, and responsibility for, one’s thinking. It is designed to foster the development of critical thinking skills and abilities as well as intellectual dispositions such as fair-mindedness, intellectual humility, and intellectual integrity. It develops the skills required to effectively evaluate the many claims facing students as citizens, learners, nurses, and human beings, and also to be effective advocates for their beliefs. The goal will be to become active learners rather than passive recipients of information.
3 credit hours
Prerequisite: None
