A Liberal Arts Education for the 21st Century

A Liberal Arts Education for the 21st Century

The College of Social Sciences and Humanities at Northeastern University offers students the best of both worlds: the intimacy of a liberal arts college, and the state-of-the-art facilities, breadth of offerings, and the accomplished faculty of a global research institution.

One of the distinctive features of our scholarly community is how engaged our faculty and students are in public issues - both locally and globally. We are creating new knowledge and building new frameworks for thinking about the past and making the world a better place in the 21st century.
