MCCCD Official Course Competencies must be coordinated with the content outline so that each major point in the outline serves
one or more competencies. MCCCD faculty retains authority in determining the pedagogical approach, methodology, content
sequencing, and assessment metrics for student work. Please see individual course syllabi for additional information, including
specific course requirements.
