Skills and Value Development

All students at Elmhurst must complete courses that reinforce and develop key skills and values.

Like the areas of knowledge, these “tagged” courses are built around specific outcomes approved by the faculty and come from a variety of disciplines.

You’ll take at least one course “tagged” for each of the following:

  • Writing at the 300 or 400 level
  • Oral Communication
  • Quantitative Reasoning
  • Information Literacy
  • Intercultural Global Engagement
  • Intercultural Domestic Engagement
  • Engaging Social Responsibility

You will be able to complete some of these requirements, such as information literacy and upper-level writing, through courses you’re already taking for your major or for an area of knowledge.

Students and guests may search for courses by Skill Tags on Self Service (Search for Courses).

More information is available in the 2023-2024.
