A leader in global research, curricular innovation, and experiential learning

The Center for International Affairs and World Cultures draws on Northeastern University’s many strengths in the study of international institutions and processes, enhancing knowledge of world societies, politics, and cultures. The Center’s activities aim to advance interdisciplinary scholarship, programs of study, and transnational linkages by creating annual programming around a relevant global or international theme. Housed in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, the Center supports and often co-sponsors the activities of area studies programs devoted to multiple geographic regions, while emphasizing thematic concerns that span the globe.
