Mission Statement

The goal of the undergraduate program is to provide bachelor’s degrees that stress understanding and appreciation of societal interdependence as well as the development of multicultural and global perspectives. While emphasizing the interdisciplinary nature of learning, the majors maintain the integrity and quality of the individual disciplines. Alliant’s faculty are committed to facilitating the preparation of their students for enlightened engagement in an increasingly interdependent world.

The undergraduate programs at Alliant International University are offered by the individual schools. Alliant degree completion programs draw upon Alliant’s core academic strengths, which include psychology and social sciences; education; business; international studies; liberal studies; and other closely related fields. Alliant offers an exciting approach to undergraduate study, one that blends classroom education with field-based, “real-world” learning opportunities. At Alliant this approach is known as a professional practice training approach since it draws from the well-proven professional school model of Alliant’s graduate programs. In addition, the undergraduate programs are linked with the graduate schools by offering opportunities for students to advance seamlessly into professional degree programs for which they qualify.

Integral to an Alliant undergraduate education is student-centered learning with core competencies articulated for all graduates. While programs have stated learning outcomes specific to each program, overarching competencies must be developed regardless of major. By the time students graduate from an undergraduate program at Alliant, they will be able to do the following: 

  • Think, write and speak critically and creatively through the effective use of both qualitative and quantitative skills.
     
  • Solve problems through the use of both independent and cooperative research strategies.
     
  • Utilize technology for extended learning.
     
  • Apply both breadth and depth of knowledge and skills in their chosen disciplines.
     
  • Demonstrate an understanding of and appreciation for the interdisciplinary nature of knowledge.
     
  • Integrate theory and practice in their chosen disciplines.
     
  • Function effectively as members of multicultural and global societies.
     
  • Move into their chosen professions or continue on to graduate level study.
