Most awards have General Education Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) requirements. Students seeking an Associate in Arts degree must successfully complete a total of 40 credits of MnTC coursework (See Associate in Arts Degree for specific MnTC goal area requirements).  The A.F.A., A.S. and the A.A.S. degrees also use MnTC courses to fulfill their General Edcuation requirements. While not required, some of the Diplomas and Certificates at Minneapolis College also use MnTC courses to fulfill their requirements.

 

 MnTC Goal Area 01: Written and Oral Communication

 To develop writing, speaking and critical listening skills in the English language. As a base, you should complete introductory communication requirements early in your collegiate studies. Writing competency is an ongoing process to be reinforced through writing-intensive courses and writing across the curriculum. Speaking and listening skills need reinforcement through multiple opportunities for interpersonal communication, public speaking and discussion.

 A minimum of 9 credits, which must include ENGL 1110 or ENGA 1110, and ENGL 1111, as well as an eligible communication studies course.

 MnTC Goal Area 02: Critical Thinking

 To help you become a thinker who is able to unify factual, creative, rational and value-sensitive modes of thought.

To integrate new skills into your customary ways of thinking, you must be actively engaged in practicing thinking skills and applying them to open-ended problems.

 Completion of the full 40-credit Minnesota Transfer Curriculum or a minimum of one course designated as a MnTC 2 course.

 MnTC Goal Area 03: Natural Science

 To improve your understanding of natural science principles and of the methods of scientific inquiry, i.e. the ways in which scientists investigate natural science phenomena. As a basis for lifelong learning, you need to know the vocabulary of science and to realize that while a set of principles has been developed through the work of previous scientists, ongoing scientific inquiry and new knowledge will bring changes in some of the ways scientists view the world. By studying the problems that engage today's scientists, you will learn to appreciate the importance of science in your life and to understand the value of a scientific perspective. You are encouraged to study both the biological and physical sciences.

 A minimum of two courses in different disciplines, one course must have a traditional lab and the other course must have a traditional lab or lab-like experience.
