Critical Thinking Seminar

The Critical Thinking Seminar serves as a gateway to college-level discourse and thinking.  In their CTS, Saint Mary’s students will develop critical thinking skills through practice and critical reflection.  The Critical Thinking Seminar also lays a foundation for information literacy by requiring all Saint Mary’s students to find, evaluate, and use information in effective oral and written communication.

Critical Thinking Seminars are spread throughout the curriculum so that students can select from a wide-range of different disciplines and knowledge.  From chemistry to the creative arts, you’ll find a CTS almost anywhere you look.
