Curricula

PROGRAM SELECTION
The college offers a number of curricula leading to the associate of arts degree, the associate of science in engineering degree, the associate of arts in teaching degree, the associate of applied science degree, the certificate, and the letter of recognition. Each curriculum has been designed to accomplish specific purposes as indicated in the description section of the curriculum or program. Students should read the descriptions carefully to ensure the program meets their educational and career goals.
Each associate degree requires between 60-70 credits in order to fulfill graduation requirements. Students may be required to take preparatory or developmental coursework as prerequisites to college-level courses. Such courses are not transferable and do not count toward graduation requirements, although de­vel­opmental coursework figures into the student’s cumulative grade point average (see “Placement Testing and Developmental Education Policies” on page 35 for further information). Developmental courses are taught in lecture and laboratory settings where maximum supervision and support can be provided and instruction is often individualized.

Developmental English
Developmental English courses include preparation in reading, writing and study skills. In addition, courses for non-native speakers of English focus on reading, writing, study skills, and oral communication skills.

Developmental Mathematics
Developmental mathematics courses focus on elementary arithmetic, fundamental algebra, and elementary geometry. Students should review their prior mathematics material before completing mathematics basic skills assessment testing.


GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
Howard Community College has the responsibility to ensure that all degree recipients have achieved a broad educational experience. To achieve this breadth of learning, the college has established fundamental general educational goals. Howard Community College students will:
•    Express ideas effectively both orally and in writing.
•    Perform mathematical operations at a college level and apply these skills.
•    Demonstrate the ability to reason logically, and to evaluate the reasoning of others through the utilization of open-mindedness, critical inquiry, and the rational assessment of data and text.
•    Display technological competence.
•    Demonstrate informational literacy.
•    Demonstrate global competency.
•    Demonstrate a perceptual awareness of and aesthetic sensitivity to the arts.
To ensure these general education goals are met by each student, Howard Community College requires all students to take courses in writing, literature, fine arts, humanities, mathematics, science, history, social sciences, and interdisciplinary and emerging issues. These topics are woven into the General Education Core Courses. Students completing the associate of arts degree at Howard Community College must complete 30-36 credits from the general education core as designated in the specific curriculum and delineated below. Also, see STUDENT TRANSFER POLICIES on page 51. Students completing the associate of applied science degree will complete at least 20 credits in general education as specified in the individual curriculum.


HCC statement OF DIVERSITY IN THE CURRICULUM
Howard Community College makes a commitment to diversity in its varied curriculum by pursuing a multidisciplinary approach to issues that sometimes separate people. Learning the histories, cultures, contributions and perspectives of the various people who make up our world and gaining an understanding of the larger world around us may create a platform for communication and tolerance. HCC’s diverse curriculum also tries to help students develop positive cultural perspectives and thus enhances the college learning process by emphasizing the dignity and uniqueness of each person and the contributions and strength of the diverse community at large.

Courses Fulfilling Core Requirements
Each program specifies general education courses needed to complete the 30-36 credit general education core requirement for the Associate of Arts and Associate of Science in ­Engineering degrees. Most of the courses listed below fulfill core curriculum requirements at state colleges and universities. A few courses may not transfer as core requirements to every college or university. Check the requirements of your transfer institution before selecting specific courses, or see your advisor for assistance.

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES
After students have selected a particular curriculum, they should familiarize themselves with the various courses that have been specified for the freshman and sophomore years. They should note particularly the prerequisites and the placement of the various courses of learning and should also be aware of their own level of development and how their backgrounds relate to their choice of curriculum.

Because of enrollment patterns and scheduling problems, not all courses specified in the suggested ­curricula are offered each semester. In addition, courses scheduled for a given semester may be canceled because of insufficient enrollment. Students must take these factors into consideration when planning their schedules and/or timetable for completing any given program or degree. It is strongly suggested that you consult with an advisor or counselor in planning your program.

It is the responsibility of students to meet the requirements of the curriculum in which they are enrolled even though counselors and faculty advisors will provide students with advice and recommendations. Students who wish to transfer courses must acquaint themselves with the requirements of the senior institution in order to obtain maximum credit at time of transfer. A complete statement of Student Transfer Policies is included in this catalog.
