IV. Critical Thinking and Communication(0-3 hours)

Writing

This course continues the development of critical thinking and communication competencies begun in UWRT 1103 or UWRT 1104.  Critical thinking and communication skills are recognized as core competencies for students earning a baccalaureate degree, regardless of major.  While students continue to develop these skills in advanced courses in their major, the General Education program provides an important foundation.  Therefore, all students must take one General Education course that carries the Critical Thinking and Communication (CTC) attribute.  Students meet this requirement by taking LBST 2301; it will be one of the three LBST courses at the 2000 level students take; they will choose two others.

Note:


Transfer students may or may not have met the Critical Thinking and Communication (CTC) requirement in courses taken at previous institutions.

  • Transfer students who HAVE met this requirement will have the CTC attribute applied to a course accepted for transfer credit at UNC Charlotte.  These students SHOULD NOT take LBST 2301 as part of their General Education requirements.
  • Transfer students who HAVE NOT met this requirement MUST meet this requirement by taking LBST 2301; depending on transfer credit, they will choose additional LBST courses at the 2000 level in order to fulfill that requirement.
