About the College
Effective July 1, 2010, the College of Arts & Sciences will be restructured into three focused colleges: the College of Arts, Media and Design; the College of Social Sciences and Humanities; and the College of Science.
The creation of three new colleges with more focused academic perspectives, all built upon the strong foundation of our University-wide undergraduate core curriculum and our established interdisciplinary research collaborations, will allow us to continue to achieve great things.
We encourage you to learn more about the new colleges by visiting their websites.
College of Arts, Media and Design
The College of Arts, Media and Design integrates progressive programs of study in Architecture, Art + Design, Cinema Studies, Communication Studies, Interactive Media, Journalism, Music, and Theatre with powerful experiential learning opportunities, enabling students to discover their passions and explore the ever-expanding prospects in their field.

College of Science
The College of Science offers distinguished programs in fields that are at the forefront of discovery, invention, and innovation.

College of Social Sciences and Humanities
Students in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities explore intrinsic questions about human nature and behavior, the organization and functioning of societies and cultures, and how humans seek to shape the world they share. The exploration of these common threads provides a broad understanding of the relationships among peoples and nations; global economics; the diversity of languages, literatures, religions, and cultures; and multiple perspectives in urban affairs, public policy, law, criminal justice, and the ethical dimensions of human behavior.

Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a private research university located in the heart of Boston, and a leader in experiential learning, urban engagement, and in interdisciplinary research that meets global and societal needs. Our broad mix of experience-based education programs — our signature cooperative education program, student research, service learning, and global learning — build the connections and confidence that enable students to transform their lives. The university offers a comprehensive range of undergraduate and graduate programs leading to degrees through the doctorate in seven undergraduate colleges, seven graduate schools, and two part-time divisions.
The Boston Advantage
The city of Boston is rich in historical, cultural, entertainment, and dining opportunities. As a Northeastern student, you can visit the pub that inspired the hit television show "Cheers," cruise around Boston Harbor, walk the Freedom Trail, cheer the Red Sox at historic Fenway Park, rollerblade through parks along the Charles River, explore the diversity of ethnic neighborhoods, study at the Museum of Fine Arts, or enjoy a performance by the Boston Pops. All around town, you'll discover outdoor cafes, dance clubs, and first-class shopping. Once you call Boston home, you may never want to leave.
