Global Opportunities

As a university where teaching and research are grounded in global engagement, Northeastern’s impact is being felt in all corners of the world. Our students shape the world through experiential learning opportunities for work, research, study, and service with more than 2,900 partner organizations in 93 countries; and through the diversity of a dynamic campus that unites students from 122 countries. Our faculty collaborate with colleagues on campus and on the other side of the world to pursue interdisciplinary research that turns discoveries into practical solutions, with a focus on global challenges in health, security, and sustainability. Our alumni, prepared by Northeastern to be engaged citizens of the world before they graduate, are making a difference in 145 countries around the globe.

Students can take part in a number of international experiences including the Dialogue of Civilizations, Alternative Spring Break, International Co-op, and Study Abroad.

Northeastern’s international cooperative education program offers co-op positions in a number of countries, with employers ranging from multinational corporations to international agencies and NGOs. The university’s intensive, faculty-led Dialogue of Civilizations trips put students on the ground, bringing to life classroom studies in the history, culture, business, politics, and economics of other nations. For a more traditional study-abroad experience, Northeastern’s International Study office offers more than 60 programs in 43 countries.

Whichever options they choose, students gain a deeper understanding of the world and truly global pathways to lives of fulfillment and accomplishment.


Locations of past DOC trips led by human services faculty include: Costa Rica, Benin (West Africa), Mexico, India, Japan, and Zambia.
