Undergraduate Research

Research experience work-study
Hired at the beginning of each semester

If you qualify for work-study through your financial aid package, you may use the work-study money to work as a research assistant for a professor. Work study-eligible students can apply directly to the Sociology & Anthropology Department. If arrangements have been made to work with a particular faculty member, the department can allocated work study resources accordingly.

Research co-ops with a faculty member, paid or unpaid, full- or part-time
Due dates follow the normal CO-OP schedule

You can fulfill your CO-OP experience by conducting research for a faculty member at Northeastern or elsewhere either domestically or abroad. Seek out a professor who is working on a topic that you are qualified to and interested in assisting with. Draft up a plan for how you can contribute to their research and what the outcome will be. Then present the plan to Lisa Worsch for her approval.
