New capstone courses in the curriculum

logo ms coc

Beginning this fall, new students in our program will select one of two 12-week experiential learning opportunities for their capstone course.

1. An online “co-op at work” experience in which a student can design a project initiative in her/his own workplace.

2. A virtual short-term consulting project with a sponsor in the private or nonprofit sectors within Northeastern’s Experiential Network.

These new capstone courses are designed to enable our students to apply the knowledge, skills, and best practices they’ve learned in their core, concentration, and elective courses. We believe this change in the curriculum leverages Northeastern’s reputation as a leader in experiential learning!
