Courses & Requirements

The associate in arts degree option in History offers guidance in course selection to students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree in History. Although this sequence takes into account prerequisites in the History departments in many New England colleges, students interested in a history major should consult an advisor and transfer institutions concerning appropriate electives. A minimum of 63 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.
