From Northeastern University

The strength of a Northeastern education is our experiential learning model—it enables you to explore your path, find your passion, and acquire the skills and knowledge that prepare you for a lifetime of success. Experiential education is centered around your success. Powered by our signature co-op program (real world experience, often paid, and deeper than an internship) and fueled by your inclination for exploration-driven excellence, experiential learning at Northeastern gives you an edge that will set you apart. There’s no other university experience quite like it. Our graduates prove this every day.

Whether you’re walking the grassy quad en route to class, traversing unfamiliar roads halfway across the globe, or moments away from a breakthrough in the lab, it’s your experiences here that give you a leg up. No two educational paths are the same.
