A private research institution located in Boston, Northeastern University was founded in 1898. Northeastern is home to nine colleges and schools conferring undergraduate degrees in over 90 academic majors. Additionally, the university operates a cooperative education program that integrates classroom study with professional experience across the globe. To demonstrate a commitment to the environment, Northeastern offers almost 200 courses that integrate sustainability lessons and the university pledges to reduce its carbon footprint by 80 percent before the year 2050.
Northeastern is an urban university that still has a campus. The focus of the program are the co-op jobs that most students take three times throughout their five years at school. The focus is on career-track majors like engineering, pharmacy and computer science.

Northeastern is an incredible school. The professors truly want to see you succeed, the classes are far more interesting and engaging than I ever imagined they would be, and there is really a sense of community throughout the campus. From the amazing coop program to the University Honors Program to all of the clubs and activities in between, there is always something to do on campus, and, since the campus is the heart of Boston, the city truly is our playground.
