Majors and Programs

Whether you want to explore a major or you're ready to declare a major, we're here to help. 

 

Core Curriculum

The NTC Core Curriculum allows students to explore a wide-range of disciplines by allowing students to have flexibility in their core curriculum while exploring a full range of courses.

The core curriculum, which is composed of a minimum of 30 credits, is divided into two parts: proficiency requirements and a distribution of knowledge. Writing Skills, Formal Reasoning, and Foreign Language proficiency are included in the Proficiency Requirements to ensure the attainment of proficiency in key skills before graduation. A range of distribution areas from Math and Natural Sciences to Aesthetics and the Creative Arts allow you to experience courses across a wide range of disciplines to ensure breadth and depth prior to graduation.

 

Advisors

Newcomb-Tulane College has over 30 advisors to assist all our students with academic planning. Transfer students, student athletes and pre-professional students have specific advisors ready to help with your unique requirements. When you are ready to declare a major you'll need to meet with a faculty member or departmental advisor as part of the process. You'll continue to work with your major advisors and your NTC advisor to ensure you're making progress in your Newcomb-Tulane College degree.
