General Education Mission Statement

General Education Mission Statement

Malcolm X College’s General Education curriculum empowers students to acquire the broad base of knowledge necessary to understand their personal, moral, and ethical responsibilities to act as leaders.
 
The learning experiences provided through general education are designed to build effective communication skills, to strengthen critical thinking, to foster analytical inquiry, to inspire awareness of history, to embrace diversity, cultural pride and identity, and to form a basis for responsible citizenship.
 
To provide the broad educational base, Malcolm X College requires students in all degree programs to take courses in communication, mathematics, biological sciences, humanities, and the physical and social sciences.
 
By completing their general education requirements, students will be able to: 

  • Think and read critically so that they can solve problems using appropriate information resources and reasoning processes.
  • Read, write, speak, and listen effectively so that the expectations of appropriate audiences in the academic, public, and private sectors are met.
  • Demonstrate quantitative and technological literacy, especially computer literacy, for interpreting data, reasoning, and problem-solving.
  • Appreciate global diversity in gender, age, race, class, and culture as well as difference in physical abilities.
  • Develop ethical values, life goals, and interpersonal skills that will prepare them for life-long learning, employability, and effective citizenship.
  • Develop foundational skills in scientific inquiry to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the natural world around them.
