Our Students

General Studies students represent a cross-section of the Northeastern student body. Though we are a small program, our students come from diverse backgrounds: athletes and non-athletes, domestic and international, as well as a small number of transfer students in their first year at NU, which often includes veterans.

This diversity allows for amazing learning opportunities for our students within the small class sizes of our first-year seminar and college writing courses. In addition to GSP-specific courses, our students pursue academic tracks toward all seven undergraduate colleges at Northeastern, and take major-specific and general education requirements with all of their first-year peers.
