Welcome to the MCC Humanities Division
Courses in the Humanities Division are among the most in-demand at Mott Community College. All areas of study require students to obtain certain skills that courses in the Humanities provide, such as analytical and critical thinking, writing, reading improvement, and communication.
Many of the general education courses required by four-year colleges and universities may be acquired within the Humanities Division and are fully transferable.
All courses are designed to help our students succeed in their college studies at MCC, when they transfer to other colleges or universities, and in the workplace.
Humanities courses encourage students to expand their personal boundaries into the world around them by developing their skills in critical thinking, by helping them learn to express themselves in written and verbal forms, and to learn to communicate in languages other than English.Courses include:
- Composition and Creative Writing
- Composition for Technical Fields
- Speech Communication
- Foreign Languages
- English as a Second Language
- American Sign Language
- Sign Language Interpreter Education
- Reading and Developmental Writing to improve students' existing skills
The program in interpreting prepares students for basic entry-level skills in sign language interpreting and transliterating. The American Sign Language courses prepare students to communicate effectively in ASL.
As English majors, students develop a range rhetorical abilities and critical thinking and analytical skills that help them become successful in a wide range of career paths. Students gain an understanding of the relationship between power and language, insight into the history of language and literature, and a deeper appreciation of writing and reading.
In studying philosophy, we seek answers to fundamental questions such as: What is ultimately real? What is the nature and extent of our knowledge? What is truth? What is the source and nature of our moral obligations?
A wonderful location to get personal tutoring assistance, study in groups, practice pronunciation, or watch foreign news broadcasts. The languages we teach and support are Arabic, French, Japanese, German, Russian, and Spanish.
