Northwood Sponsored Programs

Northwood University short-term faculty-led programs are designed and administered by the International Programs Office and faculty members. They are led by Northwood professors who also teach the courses. The length of the programs range from a few weeks to several months and participants can earn three to 15 credit hours.

The selection of programs, dates, and cost will vary from year to year.

Northwood University short-term faculty-led programs charge a comprehensive fee. This will include international airfare and in-country transportation, lodging, tuition, some meals and activity fees. Students will have to pay for personal expenses, some meals and transport to/from the departing airport (usually DTW).
