What to Think About When You Get Here
Where will COS take you?
Our wide scope of Experiential Learning opportunities help our students discover their future path. Experiences include our signature Cooperative Education (co-op) program, vast Global Experience offerings, and civic outreach through our Service-Learning platform. Students work with advisors to tailor their education to meet specific learning and personal goals
Undergraduate Research Opportunities
Research is the foundation of the scientific community. It will build your resume, help you forge connections, and give you a glimpse into potential careers. Take advantage of the head start by reviewing all your opportunities at COS. Think big, and get to work.
The PlusOne Program
If you’re set on getting a master’s, you might as well start early. The PlusOne Program gives students the opportunity to pursue both undergraduate and graduate degrees successively, in a condensed period of time.
Scholarships, Clubs, and Student Life
So much of the Northeastern COS experience takes place outside the classroom. Don’t miss out on the clubs, scholarships, and research opportunities all across campus.
PreMed and PreHealth Program
Our PreMed and PreHealth Advising program offers personalized expertise to COS students pursuing careers in healthcare. This comprehensive program includes application guidance, workshops and presentations, course mapping and more.
The College of Science is guided by a team of leaders, pioneers, scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers, writers and researchers. They influence thinking, inspire ideas and create new innovation.
Culture of Respect
We stand for a culture where each person is respected and valued, with action towards racial equality and justice.
