    • You may substitute the Writing Workshop (ENGL3319) for Advanced Writing in the Disciplines
    • ENGL3319: Writing Workshop

College of Professional Studies (CPS)

The following courses in the Northeastern University College of Professional Studies (CPS) may meet the minimum admission requirements. The College of Professional Studies uses the quarter system, not the semester system. Therefore, 3-quarter courses are equivalent to two semester courses above.

To qualify for a Northeastern University Committee Letter, Post-Bacc students need to complete at least four one-year science course sequences at Northeastern.
