EMCC General Education Statement

At Estrella Mountain, students experience a collaborative and stimulating environment which stresses a solid foundation of general education. Each facet of the Estrella Mountain experience is designed to provide students with the necessary information, knowledge, abilities, intellectual concepts, and perspectives they need to achieve their academic and personal goals.

Estrella Mountain's curricular patterns enhance critical thinking and communication skills. They reflect an emphasis on the study of composition, literacy and critical inquiry, numeracy, humanities, fine arts, the social and behavioral sciences, the natural sciences, as well as cultural diversity, global and/or historical awareness.

Recognizing the importance of breadth of knowledge, the ability to apply that knowledge, and a view of learning as a lifetime activity, faculty and staff are committed to providing all students with a teaching and learning environment in which everyone experiences growth.
