Max Willner-Giwerc

Major: Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE)

Graduated in 2021

Max came into Northeastern interested in law and politics, but he wasn’t sure exactly what he wanted to do. The PPE major provided him with a strong academic base to explore different fields, and the co-op program helped him discover his passion for investigating crime. Max is currently in law school and hopes to become a special agent after graduating. He is grateful to all the mentors at Northeastern who helped him along his journey and continue to support him after graduation.

Max ’s Path

“At Northeastern, I was encouraged to explore—to traverse academic disciplines, geographic borders, and professional fields. Only at Northeastern could I take a class about white collar crime one semester and conduct a white collar criminal investigation on co-op the next semester. Only at NU could I learn about global governance in class in the morning and meet the Director General of the UN that afternoon. Exploration is the hallmark of the Northeastern learning experience, and it made all the difference.”
