Northeastern offers undergraduate majors in 65 departments. At the graduate level, students can choose from more than 125 programs, ranging from doctoral and master’s programs to graduate certificates. Many of our academic programs examine their subjects in relation to multiple disciplines. Our 1,423 full-time and part-time faculty members frequently use that approach in their research, collaborating with colleagues in other colleges around the world to find solutions to problems in the real world. Faculty members encourage the spirit of discovery, and students in all degree programs have ample opportunities to participate in research. Our faculty researchers and their students enjoy access to some of the most advanced research facilities and institutes in the world, both on campus and in the greater Boston area.
