Liberal Arts: Mathematics

Students graduating with a concentration in mathematics will be capable of interpreting the language of mathematics, perform accurate mathematical calculations, and be able to understand how mathematics can be utilized to model natural phenomena.

Calculus-based Physics I and Calculus-based Physics II are recommended as laboratory science courses to meet the General Education requirements at Nashua Community College.

Students are encouraged to work closely with their academic adviser while at NCC.  An early decision by a student as to the four-year college/university to which he/she plans to transfer will make the advising process more effective.
