2013-2014 Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Academic Calendar



The 4-4-1 Calendar

A unique element in Northland’s academic program is its calendar. The fall and winter sessions are each 15 weeks in length. The spring (May) session is 4 weeks in length with a 12 week summer session. Fall and winter sessions allow time for maturation of ideas in a program of varied courses. The shorter spring session provides an opportunity for concentration through seminars, field experiences, travel abroad, independent study, and internships. The summer session allows for a variety of offerings including a 5-week course session and extended time for field experiences and internships.
