Courses & Requirements
The Liberal Arts Option in Writing gives students a solid grounding in the craft of writing for various purposes and audiences. This option emphasizes developing individual style, and exploring the creative or vocational applications of writing. It prepares students for transfer to B. A. programs in English, Writing, and Communications, as well as other liberal arts majors; it may also prepare students for entry level jobs requiring excellent writing skills. Students not planning to transfer are urged to consider co-op as an elective to provide field experience in their chosen writing markets. 62 credit hours are required for graduation.
Starting in the fall of 2014, any student enrolled in an associate degree program who is new to NECC and has no academic history at the college, must take at least one course designated as intensive in each of NECC’s six core academic skills in order to graduate. In most cases, the program’s core required courses include these intensive courses. Plan to see an advisor for more complete information about this graduation requirement.
