Graduation Requirements

GENERAL EDUCATION

 

Students may select courses of study and complete requirements for an Associate in Arts Degree (AA), Associate in Applied Science Degree (AAS), Technical Certificate, or Career Certificate. Programs resulting in either degree contain a combination of major courses and general education core courses.

 

General Education at Copiah-Lincoln Community College emphasizes learning that exceeds job training and skill development.  General education courses represent a substantial component of each degree program and represent a wide breadth of interrelated knowledge in the areas of humanities/fine arts (HFA), social/behavioral sciences (SBS), and natural sciences/mathematics (NSM).  The college has developed a coherent rationale including competencies for all graduates of certificate and degree programs.  Each graduate will be able to Communicate (C), Participate (P), Investigate (I), and Appreciate (A) through exposure to General Education Core Courses as part of the College’s graduation requirements.
