Northeastern University is a private research university located in the heart of Boston, and a leader in interdisciplinary research, urban engagement, and the integration of classroom learning with real-world experience. The university offers undergraduate, graduate and research programs across its main and satellite campuses. It is home to one of the largest international student communities in the United States, with over 14,000 international students coming from over 140 countries. With more than 220 majors, 8 colleges and programs, and over 130 combined majors, the University offers limitless opportunities to create a unique, personalized learning journey.
Northeastern’s academic core, known as NUpath, is built around essential, broad-based knowledge and skills—such as understanding societies and analysing data—instead of specific content areas or disciplines. It offers students the flexibility to integrate core learning into their individual educational journeys, making NUpath a unique tool for personalized curricular enrichment rather than a checklist of disconnected offerings. Northeastern’s core is integral to the university’s distinctive student-centered approach to education, preparing students to be engaged global citizens, successful professionals, and lifelong learners.
Northeastern offers more than 200 online, in-class, and hybrid graduate degree and certificate programs across 20 different areas of study, meaning there are countless ways for prospective students to achieve their personal and professional goals. It also offers 33 doctoral programs – in emerging fields within the sciences, humanities, social sciences and engineering.
