General Education Proposal, Miami-Dade Community College.
Miami-Dade Community Coll., FL.
Goals and requirements for general education at Miami-Dade Community College are outlined in this proposal of the college's General Education Committee. Twenty-six goals of general education are presented in six categories: Fundamental Skills, The Individual, The Individual and the Future, The Individual and Other Persons and Groups, The Individual and Society, and The Individual and Natural Phenomena. Proposed requirements for the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of General Studies degrees include core courses in five areas--Communications, Humanities, Social Environment, Natural Environment, and The Individual (Psychological and Physical Development). For each course, intended as multi-disciplinary courses to be developed by college-wide faculty teams, a rationale and a list of the specific goals it would meet are presented. Recommendations for the development, objectives, teaching/learning support services, and evaluation of the core courses are included. Additional required and elective general education coursework for each of the associate degrees is also discussed. Basic to the proposal is a Basic Skills requirement mandating demonstrated proficiency in reading, writing, and computational skills in order to complete a degree program. (LH)
