Curriculum for students entering program in 2014-15.
The degree of Associate in Arts in Liberal Arts with a Concentration in English will be awarded upon successful completion of the program.

This English concentration falls under the Liberal Arts program. Twenty-one credits to be taken in Literature, the credits to be divided up on such a way as to provide students with a working knowledge of genres and history while also allowing room for more concentrated course work in a student’s particular interest.

By the end of the program the successful student will have a basic understanding of the characteristics of literature produced during the generally understood periods (Renaissance, Enlightenment, Romantic, Modernist and Contemporary) as well as a broad sense of western history and of its epistemic changes over time, a sense of the meaning and function of genre (drama, fiction, poetry, nonfiction), and an understanding of place and function of literature in the contemporary world.

Transfer Information

Specific Admission Requirements

  1. One year of college preparatory mathematics (Algebra I) with a grade of “C” or higher or NHTI’s MT 093 and MT 094 both with grades 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.
