Course Formats


We offer a variety of course formats to accommodate your busy schedule. Our courses can be completed online, on-campus, or through a combination of online and face-to-face learning.


Course Formats

Northeastern University's College of Professional Studies operates on a quarter system. Courses are offered in 6-week and 12-week sessions each season: fall (September and October start dates), winter (January and February start dates), spring (April and May start dates), summer (July and August start dates). Entry terms vary by program.

On-Campus* (On-Ground)
Classes meet every week on campus for face-to-face contact with students and instructors.
Lectures, lessons, and exercises are completed online over the course of the term.

Blended - 6 week only
Classes meet approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes per week (or 3 hours and 10 minutes for summer classes); online course content and discussions equivalent to the remainder of the course contact time augment the in-class instruction.
Classes combine on-campus and online instruction. Classes do not meet on campus every week; instead, they meet on campus during selected weeks of the term as determined by the instructor. The majority of classes are held on campus. The rest of the instruction is delivered online.
