Liberal Arts @NCC

Students who choose to major in Liberal Arts have the distinct advantage of already having made a decision about pursuing a bachelor's degree at a four-year institution. NCC offers two opportunities for these students: take elective courses in various departments, or take advantage of any of the eight concentrations available:

English
Environmental Studies
History
Philosophy
Political Science
Psychology
Sociology
Women's & Gender Studies

Students following one of the concentrations or a student planning to major in another field will find it necessary to begin taking courses in that major field during the first year of the program. The diverse areas of concentration and the many electives offered through the Liberal Arts program builds confidence in students and teaches them how to exercise their mind in multiple areas. The people skills gained through the program are utilized in the workplace and in society, and the many tools that are picked up in the first two years of study will be utilized no matter the environment.
