All CSSH master’s programs offer an optional Cooperative Education Experience (“Co-op”) to eligible students.
Cooperative education is central to both the Northeastern experience and to the College of Social Sciences and Humanities Experiential Liberal Arts framework. Northeastern’s signature co-op ecosystem provides masters students with six-month work experiences in businesses, non-profits, and government agencies in Boston, across the United States, and around the world. Through co-op, graduate students gain work experience, apply their knowledge and skills across contexts, and participate in a co-curricular, interdisciplinary experiential integration course. CSSH master’s students have participated in co-op at the Office of the Attorney General of MA, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, MA Office of the Inspector General, Indigo Agriculture, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), Office of Congressman Seth Moulton, and many more.
