4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors love to talk with students and are always open to questions.

4 College Freshman

Academics: My major is Sustainable Community Development. The program itself is unique because it is relatively new. The faculty are wonderful and always eager to help; they assign a lot of work but it is always manageable. The field of study is broad so the curriculum covers a lot in order for the student to choose their own particular focus. They occasionally offer opportunities to have an internship with one of the professors, but it is rare.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The Sustainable Community Development major is fairly new and pretty easy to complete in 4 years. Northland offers a lot of great opportunities for SCD majors.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: If you want to go into an environmental field, Northland is the place to be.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I absolutely loved the Outdoor Education program at Northland. The hands-on courses gave me plenty of experience in the field, while the professors guided and advised me into opportunities for internships and careers. The campus location made even more of an impact and we incorporated field trips in almost every week.

The curriculum focused on hard and soft skills to give you all of the aspects that you will encounter while in your career. And we also had past graduates visit campus and show off what they did with their education.
