One new and two revised programs of study are ready for students at Mid Michigan Community College (MMCC) in the upcoming fall semester.
Public Health is a new offering that allows students who complete the program to connect members of the community to available health and social services. These trained professionals often assist in health system navigation; address barriers to care; and provide care coordination through referrals for needs such as food, housing, education, and mental health services.
An Associate of Applied Science degree is available upon completion of this program, and students can transfer 50 of the 62 credits required directly to CMU to pursue a bachelor degree. Non-credit Community Health Worker Training classes are also planned, and would allow students to ladder their learning into the associate degree program.
The Pharmacy Technician program of study has been streamlined and more strongly focused on student needs. The program now requires just 24 credits, and there are no pre-requisite courses required. This allows students to begin training on day one, and shortens programs completion time. The program features online lecture courses and lab hybrid courses with online lectures and on-campus lab sessions. Mid’s program also offers substantial savings, over 50%, compared to competitor costs that reach higher than $14,000.
Mid’s Business Information Systems program of study has also undergone significant revision. The program is now called the Administrative Assistant Professional program of study, and all courses are offered online in 8-week increments. Accelerated courses allow students to graduate faster, start careers sooner, and begin earning improved incomes to offset their educational investment.
“By listening to our students and making changes that fit their lives and workplace demands, Mid demonstrates its commitment to our students and to our communities,” explained Dr. Jennifer Fager, Vice President of Academic Services at Mid. “It’s important to all of us at Mid that we offer programs that work for our students, and that get them working.”
