MHC launches "My First Year" program at Brooks campus

March 6, 2012

Medicine Hat College unveiled Friday a new program for the Brooks campus called "My First Year." Participating students will be enrolled in a wide range of arts and science courses that are transferable to Alberta universities. A partnership between MHC and local school boards, the program is meant to encourage a supportive learning environment for peers, and develop an experiential learning model that incorporates theory, field research, and community-based service learning, providing a nucleus for offering 10 first-year university transfer courses at the Brooks campus. Students in My First Year will receive a $500 bursary from the college, and are also eligible for other scholarships and bursaries available to all students. The program will start running this fall.
