6 3 CREATING YOUR MAP: STEP 1 General Education at Nassau Community College General Education at NCC is a set of specified categories of courses that contribute to your development as an educated person who thinks clearly, communicates effectively, makes informed and thoughtful judgments, distinguishes among sets of values, displays an appreciation for learning and applies knowledge to the understanding of the human experience. At NCC, General Education is achieved by the completion of a distribution of courses designed to enable you to: Read and listen effectively Speak and write clearly and persuasively Think critically and creatively Understand scientific methodology, reason quantitatively and function in a technological environment Develop personal, social, and aesthetic values through an understanding of culture, nature, self and society Develop an understanding of and appreciation for behaviors that promote the good health of body and mind Develop literacy and appreciation in the visual and performing arts The selection of General Education courses depends on the curriculum requirements of your degree. These courses are grouped within the attribute categories listed on the following pages. In order to satisfy a category, you must select a course with the corresponding attribute.
7 4 ATTRIBUTE CATEGORIES ENGLISH COMPOSITION: English Composition courses are designed to give you a critical awareness of written language. They enable you to produce clear, well-developed, well-organized grammatical writing and to interpret and analyze texts of various genres. LITERATURE: Literature courses focus on the study of written works that embody the creative use of language for artistic or stylistic purposes. They express ideas of permanent or universal significance. COMMUNICATION ARTS: Communication Arts courses teach oral communication skills necessary to participate effectively in public and academic debates and discussions, prepare and present researched material, formulate valid arguments and prepare you for successful interpersonal interaction in the academic, social and professional realms. HUMANITIES: Humanities courses teach you to analyze and interpret texts, ideas, discourse systems and the human values, traditions and beliefs they reflect. FINE AND PERFORMING ARTS: Courses in Fine and Performing Arts develop aesthetic awareness by introducing you to the processes by which artists create, perform and/or evaluate works of art. They foster self-expression, understanding and an appreciation of the arts within an historical, cultural, theoretical and critical context. NATURAL AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES: Natural and Physical Science courses explore how phenomena are observed, understood and theoretically synthesized through study and the application of the scientific method. They provide you with an understanding of scientific terms, concepts and theories as well as the ability to test hypotheses in the laboratory. Study in science helps you develop the scientific literacy necessary to understand an increasingly complex world.
8 5 MATHEMATICS: Courses that satisfy this requirement use mathematical or computer science models which employ numerical, verbal, graphical and analytical tools to strengthen quantitative skills and logical reasoning and enable you to address other disciplines. SOCIAL AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES: Social Science courses investigate behavior in social contexts through analysis of the characteristics and structure of individuals, families, groups and institutions. They provide an understanding of the concepts, methods and models that social scientists use to explore social phenomena. History courses explore institutions and developments that have shaped human experience while providing familiarity with the historic narrative. PHYSICAL EDUCATION: Physical Education courses develop cardiovascular and neuromuscular skill, strength, endurance, flexibility and fitness. They emphasize improved overall conditioning as well as skills in team, individual and leisure activities. Note: Full-time, day students (enrolled in 12 or more credits/credit equivalents in courses beginning 5 pm or earlier) must complete ½ credit of physical education activities for each fall or spring term, to a maximum of two credits. The following are exempt from this requirement: Veterans Students over 25 years of age at first date of attendance Students over 30 years of age at date of graduation CULTURE AND DIVERSITY: This includes three subcategories: Western Heritage, Global Awareness and Non-Western Cultures, and Pluralism and Diversity. WESTERN HERITAGE: Western Heritage courses reflect the distinctive characteristics of western heritage presented in a broad context. They acquaint you with the evolution of western culture and values and relate them to other regions and cultures. GLOBAL AWARENESS AND NON-WESTERN CULTURES: Courses in Global Awareness and Non-Western Cultures examine and foster an appreciation of cultural traditions other than European and North American. They enhance the recognition of the diversity and similarities of the ways in which people in different cultural traditions perceive and experience their lives. PLURALISM AND DIVERSITY: Courses in Pluralism and Diversity expand understanding of the various influences that shape perspectives, values and identities. They explore social divisions such as gender, ethnicity and racial formations in a pluralistic nation and world. Go to STEP 2 on page 7
10 7 CREATING YOUR MAP: STEP 2 Understanding Your Liberal Arts Degree The purpose of the liberal arts degrees of study is to help you build a strong foundation in English, the humanities and social sciences, mathematics and laboratory sciences and to gain exposure to a variety of academic disciplines and courses. The liberal arts degrees afford the undecided student an excellent opportunity to explore possible majors in preparation for transferring to a four-year college. THE ASSOCIATE IN SCIENCE DEGREE (AS) For students entering NCC summer 2008 or later The Associate in Science (AS) degree program emphasizes mathematics and science. A minimum of 30 credits of math and science is required for this degree. The required courses are those designed for transfer to upper-division programs emphasizing math and science such as biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics or pre-professional sequences such as pre-med, pre-dental and pre-pharmacy. For AS degree requirements turn to page 8 THE ASSOCIATE IN ARTS DEGREE (AA) For students entering NCC summer 2008 or later The Associate in Arts (AA) degree program emphasizes the humanities and social sciences. Students pursuing this degree may prepare for transfer to upper-division study in subject areas such as economics, English, foreign languages, history, philosophy, psychology and sociology, among others. This major may also be appropriate for students completing prerequisites needed to enter many allied health fields and nursing. For AA degree requirements, turn to page 9

13 11 CREATING YOUR MAP: STEP 3 Academic Advisement and Choosing Courses The following pages will help you understand the role of Academic Advisement and the course selection process in creating your Master Academic Plan (MAP).
14 12 ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT FOR THE LIBERAL ARTS Academic advisement is a collaborative process in which you and your advisor work together to develop your academic plan. Your advisor s role is to help you understand your degree requirements and how to select courses with the proper attributes for fulfilling those requirements. This is done with consideration for your interests, abilities and career goals. Your advisor will help you develop strategies for academic success and can provide referrals to other useful resources on campus. Your advisor can also help you understand NCC s academic policies. Academic advisement encourages you to become self-reliant and make appropriate decisions that maximize your educational experience. While advisors are responsible for knowing the College s graduation requirements in liberal arts, you are ultimately responsible for selecting the courses you need to graduate. The Academic Advisement Center The Academic Advisement Center is located in Building U. The Center provides a staff of full- and parttime professional advisors as well as part-time faculty advisors to assist you in the development of meaningful educational plans that are compatible with your goals. No appointment is necessary. You can find our contact information, office hours and other helpful information on our webpage at Advisement at other locations You may also visit faculty in any academic department during their posted office hours. While you are not assigned a specific faculty advisor, the following Academic Departments serve as the designated advisors for liberal arts students: Allied Health Sciences (for pre-physical Therapy students only), Africana Studies, Biology, Chemistry, Economics/Finance, English, Foreign Languages, History/Political Science/Geography, Library, Math, Philosophy, Physical Sciences, Psychology, Reading, and Sociology. Consult the college website for locations and phone numbers. Liberal Arts students with two or more required remedial courses and students in B academic standing should seek an advisement appointment in Student Personnel Services, Nassau Hall (Building M) room 11. Students in D academic standing (due to low GPA) are advised by appointment in the Center for Educational and Retention Counseling in Nassau Hall (Building M) room 19.
15 13 CHOOSING COURSES: THINGS TO CONSIDER Choosing courses is an important skill for a liberal arts student. Aside from English composition, you must select all other courses needed to fulfill your degree requirements. Here are some questions to think about when choosing courses: Do I need to complete any remedial courses? Some courses may not be attempted until certain remedial courses are completed. Have I read the course description? Does the course sound like it would interest me? If there are prerequisites for the course, have I satisfied them? Prerequisites are courses that must be completed before taking a more advanced course. Am I qualified to take any co-requisites that may be required? Co-requisites are courses that must be taken simultaneously. If I am trying to fulfill a specific requirement, have I selected a course with the appropriate attribute? Does the course have relevance to my career goals? Will this course teach me skills that will help me in the work force? If I know what college I will be transferring to, have I checked to see if the course is transferable to that college and/or the program I plan to pursue? If I am trying to improve my grade point average, am I taking the appropriate courses? Should I repeat courses? Am I taking any courses that require more work than I can devote time to? Do I have the reading, math, research or other skills necessary for these courses? Should I take fewer courses so I have more time to focus on each one? What should I consider when scheduling my classes? Can I realistically get to class on time? If I have to work, will I have enough time to get to work? How many classes can I realistically handle in one day? Have I left time for homework, library research and studying? Have I scheduled needed breaks between classes?
16 14 SPECIAL COURSE OPTIONS NCC 101- THE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE (Freshman Seminar) NCC 101 is a one-credit freshman seminar course designed as an introduction to the world of higher education. The purpose of the course is to give you the skills, knowledge and insights necessary to make the most of your college experience. Some of the topics covered are orientation to NCC, time management, test-taking strategies, note-taking methods, library use, academic planning, campus resources, academic etiquette, motivation, stress management, career planning and goal setting. Although this course is highly recommended for all freshmen, it is required for any new student who has placed into two or more remedial courses. LEARNING COMMUNITIES The Learning Communities program offers you an opportunity to take paired courses linked by a common theme. The classes fulfill degree requirements while providing an enriched curriculum and an exciting learning environment. Instructors in the linked courses coordinate their assignments and discussions. Students enroll in both courses, work together and form study groups, creating a friendly and supportive atmosphere. DISTANCE LEARNING Distance learning (online courses and telecourses) can be a great alternative to attending class on campus. Course requirements are satisfied using video, audio, and/or on-line computer-based materials under the guidance of a faculty member. Students enrolling for these courses should be highly motivated and self-disciplined since the work is done independently. SUNY GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS (SUNY GER) If you plan to transfer and pursue a Bachelor s degree at a SUNY school, it is recommended that you satisfy the SUNY General Education requirements (SUNY GER) while completing your degree at NCC. This will facilitate your graduation from the four-year institution in a timely fashion. The Bachelor s degree requires approximately 120 credits (the number can vary depending on the school and program) and must include 30 credits of SUNY General Education Requirements as described below. 6 credits: Earn at least 3 credits in each of the following two categories: Basic Communication Math 15 credits: Earn at least 3 credits each in five of the following eight categories: The Arts Humanities Natural Sciences Foreign Language Social Sciences American History Western Civilization Other World Civilization 9 credits: Earn an additional 9 credits selected from ANY of the ten categories listed above To be sure that a course will satisfy both an NCC requirement and a SUNY GER, check to see if it has both attributes listed in Banner. Go to STEP 4 on page 15
17 15 CREATING YOUR MAP: STEP 4 Course Lists by Attribute When creating your Master Academic Plan (MAP) you must choose courses that fulfill the requirements of your degree program. For any course to fulfill a specific degree requirement, it must have the associated attribute (ex. to fulfill the Literature requirement for your degree, you must choose a course that has a Literature attribute.) On the following pages, you will find the courses which fulfill specific requirements listed by their corresponding attributes. You should: Circle the titles of several courses that may interest you from each category Go to and click on MyNCC Use the online College Catalog to get more detailed information about each course OR Log into MyNCC/Banner and use the Look Up Classes or Add or Drop Classes screens in the Registration menu (see APPENDIX II on page 41 for MyNCC/Banner Helpful Hints) Observe prerequisites or co-requisites for each course Important Notes: Not every course listed will be available every semester. A course will appear on multiple lists if it has multiple attributes.
