Experience Excellence


A Liberal Arts Education for the 21st Century

The combination of academic excellence and experiential learning is what sets CSSH apart from other liberal arts colleges. Students integrate experiential learning opportunities, such as Northeastern’s signature co-op program or our Dialogue of Civilizations, into their education. They create new knowledge, participate in thought-provoking discussions, and benefit from one-on-one mentoring by our world-renowned faculty. Students then use this combination of experiences to become engaged leaders for the 21st century.
