Liberal Arts and Sciences

You have an idea which way your career is headed - but you haven’t settled on a career track, and you want the freedom to explore different fields before locking into a choice. And you’d rather not pay too much while you’re exploring.

Shir Filler leads an English class at NCCC MaloneNorth Country’s liberal arts programs are built to give you that flexibility. With two separate tracks - one designed for students who want to pursue a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, biology, chemistry, environmental science, or other sciences, and another for students interested in English, psychology, history, sociology, and other people-focused areas - these degrees give you a foundation you can build on.

The course structure of our Liberal Arts & Science programs is equivalent to the first two years of classes you’d encounter at institutions offering bachelor’s of art or science degrees, so you’ll enter on equal footing with other juniors when you transfer.

No matter which program you’re in, our broad-based curriculum means you’ll develop skills in communication, critical thinking and reasoning that employers value and professional careers demand.North Country has transfer agreements with all of its 64-campus SUNY system, the nation’s largest - you’ll find yourself ideally positioned to complete your education. You’re guaranteed admission into a bachelor’s degree program at another SUNY institution if you successfully complete your degree at North Country.

The Individual Studies program affords students an opportunity to explore career options. A base of Liberal Arts and Sciences courses is combined with a program core designated to expose students to a wide range of disciplines outside the Liberal Arts and Sciences.

This program core allows students to develop a concentration in a specific area once previous course work has revealed an individual interest in that area. Areas of concentration include Business, Humanities, Human Services, Math/Science, and Social Science.
