Northeastern’s academic core, known as NUpath, is built around essential, broad-based knowledge and skills—such as understanding societies and analyzing data—instead of specific content areas or disciplines. It offers students the flexibility to integrate core learning into their individual educational journeys, making NUpath a unique tool for personalized curricular enrichment rather than a checklist of disconnected offerings. Northeastern’s core is integral to the university’s distinctive student-centered approach to education, preparing students to be engaged global citizens, successful professionals, and lifelong learners.
