Degree Qualifications Profile
The Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP) raises the question, What qualities of learning and practice does post-secondary education develop at different degree levels? (I.e. when students complete an associate, bachelor, or master’s degree, what should they know, understand, and be able to do? – independent of discipline.) Therefore, the DQP is a tool to outline clearly the common expectations for achievement in order to be eligible for a degree, whatever the major. The DQP addresses five categories of outcomes: (1) broad, integrative knowledge; (2) specialized knowledge; (3) intellectual skills; (4) applied learning; (5) civic learning.
