Philosophy of General Education
Dakota County Technical College incorporates General Education into its curriculum because it firmly believes that higher education involves breadth as well as depth of study and because General Education also achieves an important goal of the college’s mission. The mission of Dakota County Technical College is to provide collegiate-level education for employment that will empower individuals to enhance their opportunities for career advancement and success in a global economy.
General Education is a requirement of all programs of 45 or more semester credits in length and is an integral part of the formal technical or professional preparation of students.
