Third Year: Critical Thinking—Human Responses to Problems and Challenges

After learning about various environmental, societal and global problems during your first two years of experiences and coursework in the Core curriculum, you spend your third year applying the expertise you are gaining in your major to these areas of common concern.  

Weaving together the different methodologies and skills you have gained and thinking critically about the responsibilities as well as opportunities facing professionals in your field, you embrace the role of problem solver. Along the way, you develop the multidisciplinary perspective that you will need to be a leader in your field.  

The world’s problems are as many as they are complex and the greater the breadth of working knowledge you possess the more effective you will be at solving them. In this third year at UNE, you take a crucial step in this direction.
