At CCM, and throughout the State of New Jersey, we expect graduates to take General Education classes in many, if not all, of the disciplines in the list below.

We also have two integrated goals. These are “Ethical Reasoning and Action” and “Information Literacy.” You won’t find specific classes or disciplines with these goals; instead, they are “integrated” into your curriculum. So you might receive some Ethical Reasoning lessons in a Biochemistry class and also a Speech Fundamentals class.
