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

Each of many electives offered through the Liberal Arts program builds confidence and critical thinking in students seeking to transfer. Further, the communication skills learned throughout the program are useful not only in the workplace, but also in society.

To stay on track, students following one of the Liberal Arts concentrations should begin taking courses in that concentration during the first year of the program.
