Whether a student is interested in media industries, corporate communication, or political communication, our program provides abundant and unique learning experiences, both in the classroom as well as with our emphasis on experiential education.
Our faculty come from around the world and therefore brings a range of perspectives to the classroom. As society moves towards an increasingly global world, the Department and the city offer a wealth of opportunities to our students.
The emphasis on experiential education means that students are not bound by the limits of a classroom environment. Students gain real-world experience through the co-operative education program, international studies programs, internships, service learning, and spring break experiences. Our experiential education component makes this program unique among communication studies programs, not only in New England, but throughout the United States. Students leave Northeastern with more than classroom experiences; they leave with real world experiences.
