Academics

The College of Science’s broad-ranging programs in physical sciences, life sciences and mathematics can provide you with a deep understanding of emerging research and technology, encompassing such powerful disciplines as nanoscience, chemical biology, cognition and neuroscience, environmental and marine science, biochemistry, and the new, revolutionary field of network science.

Furthermore, because interdisciplinary programs at Northeastern often cut across broad areas of study – for example the arts, engineering, social sciences, computer science, and humanities – you may discover research connections that extend beyond the confines of mathematics and science. You might explore the intersection of game design and medical science, ethics and human enhancement technology, sustainable energy and architecture, and beyond. By combining your own, unique interests, you could create the kind of cross-disciplinary, innovative research that changes lives.
