Benjamin Cooper Gould

Politics, Philosophy, and Economics, BS
Master of Public Policy


Benjamin Cooper Gould was a member of the first class of students to enter Northeastern as a PPE major, and he immediately found a home, both in the program, and in the Philosophy and Religion Department that houses PPE. Between his academic pursuits and the opportunities that he had outside the classroom, he has gained a strong sense of social responsibility, in addition to the tools with which to affect meaningful change in the fields that have become passions for him.

Benjamin’s Path

“Between the remarkable classes I have been able to take, the research and extracurricular opportunities, and the personal support and guidance, I have felt like the Philosophy and Religion Department has truly been my first home here at Northeastern. As I’m ready to graduate and move on from my undergrad experience, I am very grateful to have had this department as my own.”

Cooper plans to work in education justice and policy, and may pursue an additional Master’ degree, this time in Education.
