Core Courses

The NU Core is Northeastern University’s set of institution-wide general education requirements for all students in all majors. The goal of the NU Core is to develop in our students the knowledge and skills to be lifelong learners with success in many careers, thoughtful global citizens, and fulfilled human beings. In their GSP year, students focus on fulfilling their core requirements in 3 areas—Social Sciences; Arts and Humanities; and Science and Technology.
