Since 1965, MHC has offered a variety of programs to meet the changing needs of students from southeastern Alberta and around the world. More than 30 diplomas and certificates are offered, including diploma programs that prepare students for occupations such as addictions counsellors, technical illustrators, paramedics and environmental reclamation technicians. Students planning to transfer to a university may begin their studies in more than 25 transfer programs. A partnership with the University of Calgary makes it possible for nursing students to complete a full bachelor's degree at MHC.
The College offers applied degrees in ecotourism and outdoor leadership, emergency medical technology, and visual communications. And, through partnerships with larger institutions, such as the University of Calgary, University of Alberta and Athabasca University, MHC offers collaborative degrees in communications, criminal justice, education, general studies, management, nursing and social work.
