What you'll find at NMC

my nmc story

"I came to NMC for smaller class sizes because I get more one-on-one interactions with my instructors. I have met many great instructors that have become an inspiration to me. At NMC, I have been able to achieve my entry level class goals while continuing to save for my future education plans."

Communicating effectively is increasingly important as the ways of disseminating information continues to change and evolve. NMC’s Communications program provides ample opportunity to hone your communication skills, no matter the medium you seek to use. Areas of study in this program include public speaking, literature, linguistics, modern languages and theater, among others.

You may select courses from Communications in general to fulfill requirements in a variety of programs, or you may wish to concentrate in a specific academic area, allowing you to work toward a bachelor’s degree through a transfer to a four-year college or university. While at NMC, you may pursue a general liberal arts curriculum, with electives chosen from your area of interest.

During your first semester at NMC, consult counselors and faculty members in your field of interest to familiarize yourself with the requirements of the school(s) where you may complete your bachelor’s degree. You may elect to stay in Traverse City and transfer to the University Center.

NMC’s Writing & Reading Center provides free editing help from peer readers.
