Experiential Learning

The combination of academic excellence and experiential learning is what distinguishes a CSSH education from any other liberal arts education. Students in all disciplines explore different career paths, academic interests, and global challenges by adapting to different settings, asking new questions, and applying their problem-solving skills to actual scenarios.

Experiential learning, anchored by the university’s renowned cooperative education program, lies at the heart of academic life at Northeastern. The integration of study and professional experience enables students to put ideas into action, through work, research, international study, and service, in 92 countries around the world. This makes a Northeastern education transformative, with countless opportunities for students to explore their path, discover their passion, and grow intellectually.

These experiences make students’ coursework come alive, enabling them to explore the possibilities of their major, and helping them to achieve long-term educational and career goals.
