MACC Ag sp18

Agriculture Technology Offered at MACC

In response to community need and demand and in an effort to expand offerings at its Mexico, MO, campus, Moberly Area Community College is moving forward with designing and implementing programs focused on the agriculture industry. Students pursuing these degrees can use their A+ benefit to pay for classes.

Students with plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in an agriculture field now have additional choices available to them in their course offerings. New courses will be phased in over the next 18 months. Soil Science and Rural Sociology, the first new courses designed for students interested in agriculture, will be offered beginning with the Fall 2018 semester. Additional new courses include Animal Science and Plant Science.

Course rotations will help to ensure that students have access to transfer courses that are recommended for a four-year degree in agriculture; these courses include Environmental Science, Atmospheric Science, Introduction to Business, Geology, Biology, Plant Biology, Macroeconomics, and Microeconomics.

Over the last several months, MACC faculty and staff have worked with an Agriculture Advisory Board comprised of local business leaders and educators in the Mexico area to help identify and recommend an Associate of Applied Science in an agriculture field. This degree, an AAS in Agriculture Technology, will provide the training and education needed to serve the area’s employment needs and will include such courses as Plant Science, Animal Science, Ag Systems, DC/AC Electronics, and Ag Business. MACC’s Engineering Systems Mechatronics degree is also scheduled to be expanded to the Mexico campus beginning in Fall 2018.

Core Transfer Curriculum (CORE 42)

The Missouri Department of Higher Education (MDHE) has developed a standard core transfer curriculum and a common course numbering equivalency matrix for lower-division general education courses. This core curriculum is known as CORE 42. All Missouri public two and four-year institutions of higher education have adopted CORE 42 to facilitate the seamless transfer of coursework.

CORE 42 courses are designated with a Missouri Transfer (MOTR) course number that guarantees one-to-one transfer of these courses to all Missouri public institutions of higher education.

To identify MACC’s CORE 42 courses:

CORE 42 Transfer Guidelines

  • Students who complete the Associate of Arts degree at a Missouri community college and transfer to a Missouri public university shall have completed all lower-division general education requirements at the receiving institution. Students shall receive full credit, including any prerequisites or requirements in the major, for all MOTR courses transferred. The receiving institution cannot require the student to take additional lower-division general education courses. A student may, however, have to take additional lower-division courses to fulfill program or institutional requirements.
  • Students who complete the CORE 42 at any public institution shall be considered as having completed all lower-division general education requirements at a receiving institution. Students shall receive full credit, including any prerequisites or requirements in the major, for all MOTR courses transferred. The receiving institution cannot require the student take any additional lower-division general education courses. A student may, however, have to take additional lower-division courses to fulfill program or institutional requirements.
  • Students who do not complete either the Associate of Arts or the CORE 42 shall receive credit at a receiving institution for each MOTR course completed at a sending institution. Students shall receive full credit, including any prerequisites or requirements in the major, for all MOTR courses transferred. After receiving credit for MOTR courses, the student shall complete the CORE 42 at the receiving institution.
