General Education Core
Mayland Community College requires the successful completion of a general education component at the collegiate level that is a substantial component of each associate degree program. By providing a general education core that ensures a breadth of knowledge and is based on a coherent rational, MCC supports this educational access.
As part of the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS), all associate degrees awarded by MCC require a minimum of fifteen (15) semester-hours credit of general education, including at least one (1) course from each of the following areas: humanities/fine arts, social/ behavioral sciences, and natural sciences/mathematics. Each degree program requires a minimum of six (6) semester hours of communication. Furthermore, all associate degree programs require the completion of a Humanities elective that is not a skills-based course, such as written and oral communication or introductory foreign language.
