Northeastern University’s academic programs are widely known for incorporating on-the-job learning experiences with academic training. The Department of Economics offers a Graduate Cooperative Education option in its Master of Science in Economics program. This exciting program option allows qualified students to enhance their practice-oriented graduate education in Economics with actual work experience.
To be eligible for the Co-op program, Masters students in Economics must meet the following requirements:
- Minimum GPA of 3.00 at the beginning of the Spring semester. For students entering the program in January, the GPA requirement is 3.00 at the beginning of the Fall semester.
- Completion of 4 core courses in your program prior to starting Co-op
- Completion of two full-time semesters on campus or within the US prior to going out on Co-op with 12 credits each semester
- Candidates must be available for full-time 6 month position, during the Jan-June or July-Dec Co-op cycles.
Important Note: Students must still complete all other curricular requirements associated with their program, so electing to add co-op to the program will increase the SH required for the degree by TWO billable hours.
To learn more, interested masters students should first meet with their Graduate Program Director to determine eligibility and where co-op will fit within the student’s curriculum. If you are interested in potentially pursuing co-op, please click here!
