# Indicates major field courses.
* Any course with a prefix of ANTH, ECON, HIST, POLS, PSYC or SOCI (except HIST 104C and HIST 105C).
** Any course with a prefix ARTS, ASL, CHIN, DANC, ENGL (except ENGL 100C, ENGL 101C, ENGL 102C, and ENGL 125C), FREN, GERM, MUSC, and SPAN.

Note: MATH 206C is strongly recommended for students that plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

Note: In order to fulfill the program degree requirements and to meet the prerequisite requirement of subsequent major field courses, students are required to earn a grade of “C-” or higher in each major field course.

Note: Note: Students are required to complete at least two math courses. One of the two math courses must be: MATH 205C, MATH 206C, MATH 208C, or MATH 210C.

For students with a need for a reduced course load, a 3-year version of this program is available. Contact the Department Head for details.

CL - Number of lecture/classroom hours per week for the course

Transfer Information

Specific Admission Requirements

  1. At least three years of college preparatory mathematics (Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry) with minimum grades of “C”;
  2. It is strongly recommended that all engineering technology applicants have satisfactorily completed high school level courses in chemistry and physics.

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.
