This paper presents a justification for the implementation of AI Literacy courses in higher education. Ethical concerns and biases surrounding AI technologies are explored, highlighting the importance of critical analysis and responsible use of AI. A conceptual framework is then proposed, focusing on awareness, skill development, and practical application of AI. This framework aims to foster comprehensive understanding and empower students to leverage AI's potential while mitigating risks. The paper provides sample course titles and learning objectives. The suggested course format covers AI concepts, ethical considerations, bias awareness, and practical prompt engineering skills. There is a need for integrating AI literacy courses in higher education curriculum and this paper offers a roadmap for implementation. By equipping students with AI literacy, colleges can prepare students to responsibly navigate an AI-driven world while nurturing innovation and critical thinking skills that will be needed for future success.
