Northeastern’s flagship campus builds on Boston’s legacy of innovation. Students tackle some of the world’s most pressing problems alongside expert faculty in our more than 30 federally funded research centers; 3D print models and laser cut projects inside the university’s cutting-edge Snell Library; and apply what they learn in high-tech classrooms to real-world challenges facing local nonprofits, for-profits, and government agencies.
Boston’s Job Market
Home to industry leaders such as Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston Public Schools, State Street, John Hancock, and Vertex, Boston is a hub for healthcare, education, finance, business, biotechnology, and the life sciences.
Health services and education represent the city’s largest sectors. Between January 2015 and January 2016, those two industries alone created a combined 16,900 jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Another 11,600 careers have emerged in the professional and business services and financial activities sectors since January 2015.
Our graduate degree and certificate programs are aligned with local market needs. By combining academics with hands-on experience, students graduate prepared to tackle the challenges facing Boston’s biggest industries.
Groundbreaking Research in Cutting-Edge Facilities
Our more than 30 research centers and institutes include one of only 12 Centers of Excellence funded by the Department of Homeland Security and a Marine Science Center developing robotic technology to detect underwater mines and coastal threats.
Students can pursue their research interests in state-of-the-art facilities, such as the George J. Kostas Research Institute for Homeland Security, a center dedicated to advancing the development of societal resilience in the face of 21st-century risks, and the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, which identifies and implements real solutions to the critical challenges facing urban areas throughout Greater Boston, the Commonwealth, and the nation.

Applying Academics to Real-World Experiences
Northeastern’s Career Services consistently rank in the top two nationwide by The Princeton Review. Students receive the support needed to map out a learning journey best aligned to their personal and professional goals.
Along that journey, students put theory into practice in a variety of ways, whether through in-class case studies, short-term, employer-sponsored projects, or co-op. Forty percent of Northeastern’s graduate programs offer full-time co-op opportunities, providing students the chance to gain hands-on, real-world experience within their field of study.
Serving Those Who Served Our Country
Northeastern is dedicated to helping members of the military achieve their educational and career aspirations. Our Center for the Advancement of Veterans and Servicemembers (CAVS) offers mentorship opportunities and career resources to help students more seamlessly transition to civilian life.
In an effort to make education more affordable, the university has invested $2 million into the federal Yellow Ribbon Program. Our military students experience an 83 percent graduation rate—much higher than the 51 percent national average reported by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
Our flagship campus is located in the heart of Boston between the city’s famed Museum of Fine Arts and Symphony Hall. A sanctuary of lush green spaces and tree-lined pathways, it truly is a campus within a city.
General campus tours are available through the Northeastern Visitor Center, but you can also arrange an appointment to visit your specific college of choice by contacting representatives from that college. Directions to Northeastern’s Boston campus are available online.
