Individualized Technical Studies Degree Has Two Objectives:
• Provide flexibility in programming in order to meet the educational needs of individuals based on their particular career goals.
• Emphasize an individual’s career goals that cannot be achieved through enrollment in any single instructional program currently available at the college.
As part of the educational process, each student is required to complete a personal program portfolio outlining his or her career objectives and the courses required to meet those objectives. This student portfolio, together with a completed application for admission, becomes part of the review process used by the NWTC Individualized Technical Studies committee to admit the student for a customized technical studies program.

Students who complete the 18-credit Child Care Administration Certificate may wish to combine those classes with other classes in the Early Childhood or Supervision associate degree programs for an Individual Technical Studies-Child Care Administration Degree.

In today’s world, there is increasing desire among people of all ages to explore, develop, start and run their own businesses. But the knowledge, skills and abilities to start and successfully operate these businesses have never required the wearing of so many hats – and to wear them well. Though the rewards are great, the risks are equally as great, thereby requiring that today’s entrepreneurs be more sophisticated and balanced in their planning and preparation. NWTC has carefully considered the needs of an entrepreneur, and have created four distinct Entrepreneurship Certificate tracks to consider. By pairing these certificates with general studies courses, you can create an Individualized Technical Studies Degree in Entrepreneurship.
