Share With Your Friends

All Associate in Science and Associate in Arts degree programs offered at NHTI include a minimum number of credits in General Education courses distributed in accordance with the policy of the Community College System of New Hampshire as published at http://www.ccsnh.edu/sites/default/files/content/documents/AcademicSectionsystempolicies-5-7-12WITHTABLE_000.pdf. Courses fulfilling General Education requirements are designed to supplement and expand upon the knowledge and skills acquired in the student's major field courses to help ensure that graduates meet the definition of an “educated person” as set forth in NHTI's Educated Person Statement of Philosophy.

The following list is provided so that students can determine which courses are appropriate in fulfilling General Education requirements in the areas of Communications, Literature, Humanities/Fine Arts/Foreign Language, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science. In programs where a General Education Elective is indicated, courses may be selected from any of the categories. Credits are indicated in parentheses.
