Course Content Summaries

Academic Services maintains a file of detailed course content summaries for courses offered at Northern Virginia Community College. In addition to the brief description available in the NOVA College Catalog and on the Master Course File located on the VCCS web site, these summaries list major topics covered in the courses.

College faculty develop course content summaries following the procedures described in the Curriculum Procedures Manual, Section 3.0, which is available online, in each division office, or the Academic Services office.
