Experiential Education

Learning extends beyond the classroom at Northeastern. Providing students with opportunities for experiential education that links coursework with the real world is central to the mission both of the university and the College of Science.

Students put their classroom education to work in professional co-op settings through the university’s signature cooperative program. Working on their own or in partnership with a faculty member, they discover new insights through research.

Students also bring their classwork lessons directly to the community through service learning. They expand their educational boundaries by acquiring a world view through global learning opportunities.
