In Northeastern’s signature co-op ecosystem, students undertake six-month research and work experiences with businesses, non-profits, and government agencies in Boston, across the United States, and around the world.

About co-ops

Northeastern students begin by working with their academic advisor to plan how co-op fits best into their Northeastern pathway. Students take a one-credit prep course, and then begin to alternate between full-time academic and full-time co-op semesters. Students typically work six-month assignments. The exact start and end dates are determined by the employer in collaboration with the Co-op Coordinator. Contact Lisa Worsh, the Sociology/Anthropology Co-op Coordinator for more information about co-ops.
