Curriculum for students entering program in 2014-15.

The degree of Associate in Science with a major in Landscape and Environmental Design will be awarded upon successful completion of the program.

The Associate in Science in Landscape and Environmental Design Degree has been developed to accommodate a demand, locally and globally, for educated environmental professionals. This Degree is for students interested in pursuing an education and/or career related to the natural environment such as forestry, landscape management and design, wetland science, landscape architecture, urban planning, environmental technology or environmental conservation.

The curriculum, which combines coursework in natural science, technology and design, provides students with a core foundation of education and skills needed to launch their careers as well as exposure to the variety of career and advanced degree opportunities in the growing environmental industry. Students will gain an understanding of the natural environment and its relationship to the designed built environment through required course work and practical experience. Graduates will have a working knowledge of and appreciation for the natural physical environment in the context of landscape and environmentally related professions. Some of the major field courses are only available in the evening.

Transfer Information

Specific Admission Requirements

  1.  High school Algebra I with a grade of “C” or higher or NHTI's MT 093 and MT 094, both with grades of “C” or higher;
  2.  High school Biology with lab with a grade of “C” or higher.

Internship Considerations

NHTI has developed excellent practicum opportunities for our students to foster hands-on learning while simultaneously receiving credit. Nonetheless, the college's first priority must be to ensure that patients/clients/children/families are not placed in jeopardy by students during learning experiences. Therefore, students in internship, externship, practicum, service learning, and clinical experiences must demonstrate sufficient emotional stability to withstand the stresses, uncertainties and changing circumstances that characterize patient/client/child/family responsibilities. Furthermore, the student is expected to have the emotional stability required to exercise sound judgment, accept direction and guidance from a supervisor or faculty member, and establish rapport and maintain sensitive interpersonal relationships and confidentiality with employees, customers, and/or patients/clients/children and their families.
