Program Outcomes

Program outcomes are the standards set by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development for all programs offered at Ontario Colleges. Program outcomes are consistent across colleges which offer the same program.

Your program’s learning outcomes should be listed on Seneca’s Program Page. If your outcomes are not posted, please contact your Chair.

As you get started with course design, it is very important to familiarize yourself with the learning outcomes for your program and to identify how successful completion of your subject will contribute to students’ achievement of the program outcomes.

Once you have found and reviewed your program outcomes, copy and paste them into a document. You will use this document as a reference when completing other steps in the course design process.

Liberal Studies Courses:

Program requirements for General Education are set by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. If the course you are designing is a General Education option, consult the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development College Framework for Programs of Instruction (linked below) to determine the category of the course, and to identify how your course would contribute to the stated General Education requirements.
