While many students participate in co-op, it is only one of many options that the University offers its students in the area of experiential education. Northeastern’s reach extends into the surrounding community and around the world through study, research and service-learning projects.
Northeastern’s innovative study-abroad programs offer more than just classes. The University has extensive overseas contacts in 23 countries, allowing students to immerse themselves in other cultures by undertaking independent research projects, working at international co-op jobs or taking classes at foreign universities.

Service learning, which gives students a chance to gain academic knowledge while working in a community-based organization, can be incorporated into virtually any class.

The Faculty/Undergraduate Research Institute supports students who assist faculty with important research. Participating students receive a stipend, spend about five hours a week on research and produce research reports that are presented at Northeastern’s annual Experiential Education Expo.
