Earning a degree at Midland College (MC) provides students with valuable skills such as communication, critical thinking, personal and social interaction and experience. In addition to the general skills gained from attending MC there are more focused and discipline-based skills. These skills can be either primary or complementary to a major and are acquired by students through education, including curricular, co-curricular, and other non-classroom activities (Texas High Education Coordinating Board, 2015).
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) requires all two- and four-year public institutions in Texas to document, update, and communicate the skills students can expect to acquire in their programs.
Following completion of the marketable skills form, the director of Marketing and Communication will compile a ‘marketable skills’ section for each program area and provide a draft for approval to the program chair and dean. After the approval process is completed, the final copy must be published on each departmental and/or program web page.
