Why General Education is Important to Your Program Education
Sometimes students wonder why they need to take general education courses as a part of their award program.  There are several reasons to take general education courses.

Your program courses will focus on teaching the skill sets necessary to fulfill the technical requirements of your future career. General education courses have been designed to support your program and will assist you in working with co-workers, vendors, and customers, by teaching people and thinking skills necessary to help with your success.  

Many of you will be taking a skills assessment test at the end of your program.  This assessment will not only test your technical skills, but will also assess your ability to work with people.  In talking with business and industry professionals, they have told faculty how important these thinking and people skills are in the workplace.  Using these soft skills will help you work well with others and bring value to your work while making you a valuable asset to your employer.

The courses we design in General Education will change your life by giving you skills to improve both your professional and personal life. We look forward to working with you as you write the next chapter in your story at Hennepin Technical College!
