General Education

Certificate

PURPOSE: The General Education Certificate is designed to serve as an intermediate step toward the associate of arts or associate of science degree for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university. The curriculum provides students with a foundation in the general education core competency areas of communication, critical thinking, information literacy, cultural and social understanding, personal development, quantitative reasoning, and scientific reasoning.

First-time job seekers who come to their employers with basic writing, analytical reasoning, and computing skills find they can be more competitive in the job market and more valuable in the workplace. Counter and retail clerks, administrative support, social and human service assistants, and customer service positions, as well as a variety of other fields, require individuals to apply their entry-level knowledge and skills while exploring the world of work and relevant career opportunities. For those employees who wish to pursue their education, the General Education Certificate provides foundational courses that allow students to progress toward the associate degree or to transfer to a senior institution.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS: General college curricular admission

PROGRAM NOTES: This certificate is approximately equivalent to the first year of study in any one of Reynolds’ associate of arts or associate of science transfer degree programs. The associate degree is the gateway for transfer to a four-year college or university through one of many articulation and guaranteed admission agreements currently available to Reynolds students.
