Co-op (short for “cooperative education”) makes a Northeastern education richer and more meaningful, providing students with experiences at home and abroad that help them develop the knowledge, awareness, perspective, and confidence to transform their lives.
Our co-op program, founded a century ago, is one of the largest and most innovative in the world. Attending school for either four or five years, they gain up to 18 months of professional experience related to their major or career interest with any of more than 2,000 employers across the United States and in 69 countries around the world.
Study and research in the sciences increasingly crosses two or more disciplines, and our co-op opportunities within these areas are correspondingly interdisciplinary. In the biological sciences, you’ll find co-op positions with world-renowned health care institutions as well as neighborhood health clinics, and with multinational biotechnology companies as well as nonprofit research labs.
