NECC Offers Classes during Winter Break
November 17, 2017 – 9:07 pm

Make winter count. Use your downtime to update your classes.

Those weeks in between semesters can be a great time for catching up or jumping ahead on college credits. Northern Essex Community College will again offer its annual winter intersession, a series of accelerated credit courses offered online or on campus throughout the month of January.

NECC is now registering students for the more than two dozen courses available online or at the Lawrence Riverwalk campus, 360 Merrimack St. The intersession is open to NECC students and students from other colleges or universities.

Most courses are suitable for a wide range of majors and fulfill core liberal arts requirements at two-year and four-year institutions. This year’s intersession on campus courses include First Year Seminar and Public Speaking as two-week intensives ending January 12. Online courses, running from January 2 through January 26, include Cultural Anthropology, Human Nutrition and Health, Macro and Micro Economics, Introduction to Music, Introduction to Psychology, US History II, and Statistics as well as other courses. For a complete list and for additional information, visit the Winter Intersession page.
