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.
