Bachelor of Science

B.S. programs normally require a student to take the majority of their courses (usually 1/2 or 3/4) in the sciences, namely life sciences, physical sciences, engineering, or the mathematical sciences. Graduate and professional schools typically require a four-year B.S. or B.A. for admission. Students pursuing a B.S. are not required to have an Associate's Degree.

Any student seeking a Baccalaureate degree must complete a minimum of 36 credit hours of general education and 43 credit hours of core courses. Students in the baccalaureate degree programs are required to complete a minimum of 30 credit hours in the upper division courses, i.e., 300 and 400 level courses before they can graduate.


Federal regulations require institutions participating in student financial assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to report certain information about students who enrolled in Title IV eligible education programs.

Many career options are available with a degree in Animal Science. Through experiential learning, the Animal Science program will provide a high quality educational experience. For the most part, students will complete general education courses during their first two years at NTU to prepare for more specialized courses in their third and fourth years. Knowledge in these specialized subjects lays the framework for entry into a broad range of professions in Native American communities, as well as throughout the United States and also to pursue advanced professional degrees, such as a D.V.M. (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine), medical school, pharmacy school, physical therapy, dental school, etc.

A student needs to complete the core Animal Science and general education courses within the first two years of study with a grade point average of 2.00 or better before taking the upper level core courses (300 and 400-level courses). To complete the program, a credit load of 13-15 per semester along with summer sessions are mandatory.

Students develop a broad knowledge of biology that is integrated with dynamic high quality research programs in specialized areas like molecular biology, genetics, animal and plant physiology, ecology, cell and developmental biology, evolution and behavior. Research experience would instill in students the scientific application of theoretical knowledge to real world problems, as well as provide them the opportunity to work with, and get to know researchers working in their desired fields. Knowledge of these specialized subjects is intended to lay the groundwork for entry into a range of much needed careers in the Native American Communities (especially the Navajo Nation), including medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, conservation and management of the environment, and provide them broader job opportunities elsewhere in biotechnology, agriculture, forestry, and fisheries. The program provides students who are interested in going to medical school the right support and preparation to successfully pass the MCAT/PCAT* exams and the needed guidance for the application process.

Students interested in pre-med Biology need to complete the core Biology and general education courses within the first two years of study with a grade point average of 2.5 or better before taking the upper level core courses (300 and 400-level courses). In addition, Pre-med Biology majors are required to be in good standing thereafter with a grade point average of at least 3.00 or better to continue as pre-med majors.

"Our Children will learn more because you learned more”

Navajo Technical University is dedicated to prepare Early Childhood Professionals in a culturally and linguistically diverse environment at a baccalaureate level. Students work intensely and progressively to prepare for their State Early Childhood Teacher Licensure from Birth to 8 years old.

This program provides a unique opportunity to assist present or future teachers of young children to use child development knowledge within the childcare, preschool and primary schools. This includes practical field experience, which will enhance their professional practice and gain competence in working with Infants through 8 years old and their families.

A student needs to complete general courses and general education electives within the first two years of study with a grade point average of 2.0 or better before taking the upper level core courses (300 and 400-level courses). However, to complete the program within four years, a credit load of 15 to 18 is recommended.

The electrical engineering program is designed to prepare students to design and improve electrical, electronic and computer systems. The program combines practical exposure to the most modern technologies available with a theoretical foundation that empowers students to master future changes and innovations.

A Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering requires 123-124 credit hours and the Environmental Engineering degree is designed for a four-year program of study. The minimum credit load for a full-time student is 12 credit hours per semester.

A student needs to complete general courses and general education electives within the first two years of study with a grade point average of 2.0 or better before taking the upper level core courses (300 and 400-level courses). However, to complete the program within four years, a credit load of 15 to 18 per semester is recommended. Also, this time can be reduced by attending summer sessions and/or interim sessions.

A Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science requires 122-123 credit hours and the Environmental Science degree is designed for a four-year program of study. Students in the baccalaureate degree programs are required to complete a minimum of 30 credit hours in the upper division courses, i.e., 300 and 400 level courses before they can graduate.

  • General Science Requirements - 32 Credits
  • General Education Requirements - 34 Credits
  • Core Environmental Courses - 56 Credits

Industrial Engineering Mission Statement
The mission of the Industrial Engineering program at Navajo Technical University is to provide the best possible education, research, services, and resources to prepare students for careers in industry, research or academia and to achieve success in life.

 

Industrial Engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with design and improvement of integrated systems, including human resources, materials, equipment, and energy; using mathematics, physical sciences, and social sciences to maximize production of goods and services. In order to maximize efficiency, industrial engineers study product requirements carefully and then design manufacturing information systems to meet those requirements using physical and mathematical models. In addition, they develop management control systems to help in financial planning and cost analysis, and they design production planning and control systems to coordinate activities and ensure product quality. Furthermore, they design and improve systems for the physical distribution of goods and services and determine the most efficient plant locations as part of facilities planing operations. In a nutshell, industrial engineers determine the most effective ways to use the basic factors or production; namely people, machines, materials, information, and energy to make products and provide services.

A Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering requires 123 credit hours and the Mechanical Engineering degree is designed for a four-year program of study. The minimum credit load for a full-time student is 12 credit hours per semester.

A student needs to complete general courses and general education electives within the first two years of study with a grade point average of 2.0 or better before taking the upper level core courses (300 and 400-level courses). However, to complete the program within four years, a credit load of 15 to 18 per semester is recommended. Also, this time can be reduced by attending summer sessions and/or interim sessions.
