The Liberal Arts curriculum provides students with broad general knowledge and skills in the arts and sciences. It is designed to provide a basis for transfer to four-year liberal arts programs at other colleges and universities. In addition, the Liberal Arts program provides a starting point for undecided students, as well as those planning to complete prerequisite courses to transfer into Engineering Technology, Math, Biology, Health Science, Environmental Science, or Accounting at NHTI. The program is flexible - students select courses based on the requirements of the program or college to which they plan to transfer.

Transfer Information

Specific Admission Requirements

Note: Applicants should be aware that all associate degree programs at NHTI require successful completion of at least one semester of college level mathematics. Therefore, the college strongly recommends that all applicants successfully complete high school Algebra I with a grade of “C” or higher prior to admission. Those students whose placement testing does not demonstrate readiness for college level mathematics may require more than two years to complete their degree.

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.
