Benjamin Cooper Gould

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

Graduated in 2021

Benjamin Cooper Gould was a member of the first class of students to enter Northeastern as a PPE major. The intersectionality of the program has allowed him to discover and pursue a diverse set of interests. 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 that I have had, and the personal support and guidance that I have received, I have felt like the Philosophy and Religion Department has truly been my first home here at Northeastern.”

Cooper is hoping to specialize in education justice, first by pursuing a Master’s in Education before teaching, and ultimately going into policy.
