Core Curriculum

NYIT’s new core curriculum was developed to give students an outcomes-oriented education to prepare them for the 21st-century workforce – in other words, NYIT students master specific core competencies that all professionals need today -- and tomorrow. NYIT's unique approach focuses on introducing and fostering specific skills so that students meet the critical needs of their future employers, including:

  • Communication (written, verbal, and visual representations that are appropriate for various topics and audiences)
  • Literacy (reading, writing, accessing, evaluating, and using information, utilizing technology and quantitative methods)
  • Critical/Analytical Thinking (decision making and problem solving based on research, logic, and qualitative and quantitative analyses) 
  • Interdisciplinary Mindset, and Skills (how to approach issues or problems with interdisciplinary perspectives) 
  • Ethical/Moral and Civic Engagement (ethical concepts, cultural understanding, and an understanding of the responsibilities of citizenship) 
  • Global Perspective/World View (an understanding of the nature and influence of culture as well as global interdependence)
  • Process and Nature of Sciences and the Arts (appreciating the applications of research and creative processes)
