Co-op & Experiential Learning

Experiential learning, anchored by our signature cooperative education program, lies at the heart of a Northeastern education. Our broad mix of experience-based education programs—including co-op, student research, service learning, and global learning—build the connections that enable students to transform their lives. These connections enrich classroom studies, fuel intellectual and personal growth, and provide students with opportunities to explore their path and discover their passion.
These points of real-world engagement—at a university that is a world leader in experiential learning—means that our students are better prepared to succeed in the lives they choose. It's the Northeastern difference.

  • Research Opportunities

    Research collaborations enable students to be knowledge creators and gain insight into the process of discovery. 

  • Service Learning

    Service learning raises students' consciousness of community and prepares them to pursue an engaged, ethical life. 

  • Global Experiences

    Global learning readies them for a landscape that increasingly requires an international worldview and familiarity with other cultures.
