Bachelor of Science Degree Program Overview

Introduction

Neumont takes pride in its systematic, industry-driven approach to education. Neumont's curriculum comprises elements of problem- and project-based learning, competency-based assessment, and active engagement to maximize the learning of each student.

Neumont offers five Bachelor of Science degrees in its undergraduate programs:

Project Courses

In project courses students are immersed in a hands-on, team-based learning environment. These projects expose students to large-scale problems with complex solutions which require teamwork and collaboration to successfully achieve results. In these courses students apply the subject matter competencies learned in other core courses. Additionally, students gain experience practicing the communication, collaboration, and leadership skills which are so crucial to the success of all Neumont graduates. These project courses, together with the core lecture courses, and the General Education courses, provide students a rich and challenging learning experience.

To ensure depth of instruction, and allow students to both learn concepts and apply them, Neumont pairs lecture and project courses that share the same learning objectives. Together, these paired lecture and project courses are considered a single prerequisite; a student must pass both in order to move into the next set of courses. Only one lecture and project course pair may be taken per quarter without Registrar approval.

Students work on internal projects while they are learning the intricacies of specific skills associated with their discipline. Internal software projects are controlled, designed, and structured by faculty to ensure student mastery of required competencies. In their final quarters, students participate in Enterprise Projects which expose students to external organizations with real business needs and constraints. These projects give students opportunities to learn in a variety of environments which they may encounter throughout their careers.

General Education Courses

General education courses provide students with a broad academic foundation in a variety of subject areas. These courses are designed to support core courses and learning objectives. Subjects for these courses focus on career skills, academic and personal growth, and a diversity of student interests.
