Cooperative Education (Co-op) is a distinctive form of experiential education in which students alternate periods of academic study with periods of paid work experience.

Students at Northeastern University with majors in chemistry may earn experiential education credit when they successfully complete the following components of the Cooperative education learning model: preparation, activity, and reflection

The Academic Advisor and Co-op Coordinator for the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology is:
