Northeastern University may soon be the newest name in higher education in Seattle.
The Boston-based school announced Monday that it plans to open a Seattle campus next year, providing graduate and professional degree programs using online and classroom learning.
The school opened its first regional campus in Charlotte, N.C., on Monday and wants to take a similar approach in other cities.
The university plans to tailor its courses to each region. In Seattle, it sees a strong need for graduate and professional programs catering to working professionals in a variety of fields including science, technology and health.
