MacMurray College

Jacksonville, IL

MacMurray College says, 'The General Education program constitutes the shared legacy of all MacMurray College graduates.The program is also in a practical sense our job-readiness program because it emphasizes the less tangible skills that employers want from college graduates. This shared curriculum is designed to realize two traditional objectives of a liberal education: the training of the mind and the development of a breadth of perspective, thereby enabling MacMurray graduates to be open to new ideas and yet to be discriminating in their judgment of the merit of those ideas. The courses of this common curriculum are also job-readiness courses that emphasize the development of skills that are critical for success in any field as well as enabling graduates to continue the process of self-education.'
