Cooperative Education

Co-op (short for “cooperative education”) makes a Northeastern education richer and more meaningful, providing students with experiences at home and abroad that help them develop the knowledge, awareness, perspective, and confidence to transform their lives.

Dialogue of Civilizations

Dialogue of Civilizations takes Northeastern students around the world to experience different cultures first hand through meetings and discussions. Offered through the Global Experience Office, Dialogue of Civilizations is an intensive series of two-to five-week summer for-credit programs in more than 20 different countries. Participants meet with government leaders, local groups, and students for one-on-one discovery.
