Construction Management students at NAU have many resources available to them. Arguably the most valuable is advising. Our advisers can assist students in degree planning and answer any questions about the experience.
Details on degree requirements and courses for the CM degree and other degrees can be found in the current NAU Academic Catalog. The following is a PDF chart of the 4-year course progression plan that Construction Management students must complete before graduation.
*Construct for Practice (C4P): Since 2012, our curriculum has integrated practical labs with what you learn in the classroom. Team up with other students to create, design, and manage all facets of a building project.
*Information on your faculty mentor can be found in your LOUIE page.
Many of the CM courses are going to a once-a-year rotation.
