Navigator was created with you in mind. Newman faculty and staff designed the program to help you succeed and to prepare you to live our mission when you graduate.

As a full-time student, the Navigator courses are provided at different stages throughout your academic journey. Most students will enroll in four classes, although some will only be required to take the first two courses since content in the other two is embedded in coursework for their major*.


*Students in Education, Theology and Nursing/Allied Health majors are ONLY required to take Flight Planning and Lift Off courses.
