College of Science Channels


The Department of Biology provides students with a broad understanding of the biological organization and processes of life, from molecules and cells through tissues and organs, to populations, ecosystems, and evolution.

The Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology helps students navigate their own path to discovery and pursue a meaningful career in any field through stimulating and supportive real-world preparation and research.

The Department of Marine and Environmental Science program seeks to prepare future generations of climatologists, ecologists, and marine biologists for the front lines of climate change — to reclaim our coral reefs, and oceans, our biodiversity, our air, and certainty for our future.

The Department of Physics equips students with what we know about our universe — theories on matter, the forces, space, and time — so they can reach into the unknown and answer the question… why?

The Department of Psychology works to explore the deepest inner workings of our brains and uncover why we do what we do.

Institutes and Research Centers

The Center for Complex Network Research has a simple objective: think networks. The center’s research focuses on how networks emerge, what they look like, and how they evolve; and how networks impact on understanding of complex systems.

The Institute for Chemical Imaging of Living Systems is pioneering new imaging tools to reveal the body’s chemical processes in real time, leading to deeper understanding of disease, faster pathways to treatment, and technologies that harness the brain-machine interface.

The Marine Science Center is the marine research and educational facility of Northeastern University. Located on the peninsula at historic East Point in Nahant, Massachusetts, the MSC juts into the ocean just five miles north-northeast of the entrance to Boston Harbor.

The Network Science Institute explores universality and predictability of systems to discover their function and develop intervention strategies to improve the health and security of human populations.


The linguistics program guides students to better understand the striking complexity of linguistic knowledge, to appreciate the remarkable diversity of linguistic structure, and, along the way, to unravel a bit of the mystique surrounding this critical facet of the human experience.

Our PreMed and PreHealth Advising program offers personalized expertise to Northeastern students pursuing careers in Pre-Medical (MD/DO), Pre Dental, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Physician Assistant, Pre-Podiatry, and Pre-Veterinary areas.

The Three Seas Program is an immersive and field-intensive program in marine biology with a focus on research, applied marine sustainability, conservation, and restoration.
