The Degree Qualifications Profile (216412193)

The Degree Qualifications Profile (216412193)

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1 |Likes:
Published by EDUCAUSE
Through this document, Lumina Foundation for Education offers a “Degree Qualifications Profile,” a tool that can help transform U.S. higher education. A Degree Profile — or qualifications framework — illustrates clearly what students should be expected to know and be able to do once they earn their degrees — at any level. This Degree Profile thus proposes specific learning outcomes that benchmark the associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees — which constitute the great majority of postsecondary degrees awarded by U.S. colleges and universities — regardless of a student’s field of specialization.
 
The learning outcomes specified in this Degree Profile are not without precedent. In fact, the Degree Profile draws on more than a decade of widespread debate and effort, across all levels of U.S. higher education, to define expected learning outcomes that graduates need for work, citizenship, global participation and life. Building from this work, this Degree Profile is deliberately offered as a “beta version” that will be further tested and refined by a variety of stakeholders.The long-term goal is to clearly define quality in American higher education and to develop new capacity throughout postsecondary education to ensure that students achieve the levels of learning they need and deserve.

Lumina Foundation for Education, an Indianapolis-based private foundation, is committed to enrolling and graduating more students from college — especially 21st century students:low-incomestudents, students of color, first-generation students and adult learners. Lumina's goal is toincrease the proportion of Americans who hold high-quality degrees and credentials to 60 percentby 2025. Lumina pursues this goal in three ways: by identifying and supporting effective practice,through public policy advocacy, and by using our communications and convening power to buildpublic will for change.

Doctorates are not included at this time because of their emphasis on advanced research skills specific to individual disciplines. Medicine,law, and other such degrees are also excluded at this time because of their exclusive focus on advanced practice knowledge and skills. Profiles for these advanced degrees may be proposed later.
