General Education Core Competencies
The overall goal of a college education is to help students become productive citizens. The General Education core contributes to this concept by providing a variety of learning experiences which ensure that graduates are intellectually prepared for lifelong learning.
STC has identified the following general education core competencies that graduates will attain.
- The ability to utilize standard written English.
- The ability to solve practical mathematical problems.
- The ability to read, analyze, and interpret information.
An integral part of a student's education as they move through a given program of study is the ability to transfer and apply knowledge to the workplace. As a key component of degree, diploma and select technical certificates, capstone courses have been identified which include any of the following: a specific exit exam, project, portfolio, or skills check-off, etc. measuring student knowledge. When students are able to pass the exit assessment, they demonstrate they have retained knowledge throughout their program of study which will carry over to their chosen career. Students who do not pass the exit assessment will not be able to graduate and the capstone course will need to be repeated and passed along with the exit assessment.
In instances in which a student transfers from another college (having taken a course there-which is a capstone course here) into the same program at STC, they will need to complete STC's program exit assessment. This will be a requirement before credit for the course is given. In cases in which a student transfers from another college that has a capstone course for same program, the student will need to take the exit assessment for STC's designated capstone course. Students who do not pass this assessment will not be able to graduate and the capstone course will need to be repeated and passed along with the exit assessment.
For any questions regarding STC's capstone courses, please see your program advisor.
