Employers value new employees who have the ability to think on their feet, evaluate and organize information, solve problems and focus their thinking. You can enhance these skills by taking classes and getting involved in projects that allow you to exercise critical judgment, acquire and evaluate information, make decisions and solve problems.


Courses throughout the G.E. Program contribute to the building of problem solving and critical thinking skills. For example:

Critical Thinking in the Arts provides students with the tools to analyze and critique works in the visual and performing arts. In classes from Natural Sciences and Mathematics, students learn both the logical and analytical skills found mathematical relationships and the scientific method. In addition, they learn to think abstractly as they analyze and consider theoretical relationships. Coursework from the social sciences provides students with the opportunity to analyze the social construction of history, beliefs and behavior.

A sample of elective or major coursework includes:


"At Enterprise, it's not what you know, but the problems you solve that make the critical difference. Developing these skills while you are a student will give you a competitive advantage when looking for a job with us."
