    Assessment Learning Goals

    The focus of the interdisciplinary Human Life Studies minor program at Franciscan University is to:

    • Lead students to a brader and deeper knowledge and understanding of the philosophical, ethical, theological, biological, legal, political, historical, and social dimensions of human life issues
    • Prepare students to thing, speak, and act intelligently in these critical matters confronting contemporary culture.
    • Address topics that either directly concern human life issues or topics such as marriage and family life, economic justice, or social justice, which indirectly but decisively affect human life and dignity.
