Courses & Requirements
No new students being accepted.
The associate in arts degree option in General Studies is designed to provide a flexible curriculum which combines a core of transfer courses with an opportunity to explore either particular liberal arts interests such as arts, graphic design, mathematics, natural sciences or social science, or occupational courses in such careers as engineering, computer science, management and health professions. A minimum of 61 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.
