Northeastern University’s 3+3 Program is offered by invitation only to a select group of first-year students admitted into Criminal Justice, English, History, Philosophy, or Political Science majors within the College of Social Sciences and Humanities (CSSH), or Communication Studies and Journalism majors within the College of Arts, Media and Design (CAMD), or the Health Science major within Bouvé College of Health Sciences or Mechanical Engineering majors within the College of Engineering (COE).
