All graduates of associate degree programs at Eastern Maine Community College will improve their initial skills in the following common learning objectives:

  • Communication:  Graduates effectively convey ideas to others using graphics, speech and writing, while sources (if any) are handled appropriately, and content, mechanics, and presentation are clear and appropriate to the assignment.
  •  Teamwork:  Graduates work effectively in teams with individuals from diverse backgrounds to achieve a goal.  Graduates work collaboratively and in a timely manner to ensure that all members participate in accomplishing the task and provide constructive feedback when conflicts arise.
  • Independent Learning:  Graduates access, evaluate, and synthesize information independently using appropriate technology, and select information relevant to the assignment, then organize and synthesize it clearly.
  • Problem Solving: Graduates can interpret manuals and reports, use numerical literacy skills, scientific methods, and/or logic to first separate the symptoms from problems and then to work through the details of the problem to seek a solution.
