The following are new programs under development at Morgan Community College. Additional information will be available when programs have been fully approved by the Colorado Community College System and are ready to enroll students.
Agriculture has been transformed by technology over the years, with increasing focus toward sustainability, resource use, water conservation, and crop yield. The Precision Agriculture program will train students to use and integrate technology such as global positioning satellite systems and unmanned aerial vehicles linked with tractors, sprinklers, and other farm equipment. Students will experience a working laboratory with either a campus farm, or through internships and other work-based learning experiences.
Media Design, Marketing and Advertising
For businesses to thrive in today’s economy, they need to learn how to find their audience and stand out from the crowd. Students in the Media Design and Marketing Program will learn how to market, advertise, and promote businesses in a variety of traditional and digital media. The program emphasizes developing the media and design skills necessary to create effective and engaging content, including graphic design, web design, and video production. Enrolled students will pair up with a local business or non-profit organization to develop a marketing and advertising campaign with stated goals and an analysis of the results.
A career in law enforcement is a challenging yet rewarding journey. This career requires strong interpersonal skills as well as critical thinking and problem solving abilities necessary to determine appropriate courses of action. The Law Enforcement program at MCC is designed to provide current officers the opportunity to earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Law Enforcement through granting prior learning credits. This program grants credit for coursework already completed as evident by holding a current Peace Officer Standards and Training Certification in the State of Colorado. Pursuing an Associate of Applied Science Degree may open up doors for advancement in the field.
Viticulture and Enology
Viticulture is the science, production, and study of grapes. Enology is the study of wine and winemaking. Morgan Community College is exploring the creation of a program to teach people the science and art of growing grapes and making wine. Included in our plan is to develop a teaching winery in Fort Morgan with business incubators for graduates to start their own wineries. The program intends to capitalize on the agricultural resources of eastern Colorado, and promote agri-tourism across the region. The program will also teach business principles, marketing, and entrepreneurship skills to students to start and maintain their own business.
