Course Design

Northwest uses Discovery and NU Online as their learning management systems to provide learning materials, reference links, assignments, discussion forums, and other support features needed by students, except textbooks.

Whenever possible, the Northwest Partnership Program blends face-to-face and online courses, depending on the program size and the number of qualified local faculty. It's the best of both worlds: the flexibility of online education and the strength of weekly personal instruction.
