Experiential learning is integrated into every master’s program offered by CSSH. To be part of the innovative work happening here as well as advance your career, consider one of the following programs.
Foundational liberal arts skills, experiential opportunities, and tech and data integration — this is the dynamic mix that the Northeastern University College of Social Sciences and Humanities (CSSH) knows best. Led by expert faculty, programs here use the ever-relevant topics of history, economics, international affairs, urban informatics, social analysis, and more to address the greatest challenges of our time.
CSSH master’s students have access to robust experiential learning opportunities. They can kick-start their careers or gain research experience through Northeastern’s signature co-op program. They have the chance to work within an urban community to discover new solutions to persistent problems. They can immerse themselves in new cultures and build an international network through global experiences.

Master of Science in Economics
“The program allows me to understand the power of economics with the real world setting and gain practical working experience from co-op for my future career development.”
Master of Science in Security and Resilience Studies
“The courses I have taken at Northeastern opened my eyes to the depth of issues surrounding security. I never would have considered problems such as disease epidemics and pandemics as security concerns.”

Master of Science in Urban Informatics
“I wanted to do something different. This program consists of a perfect blend of computer and programming skills, urban studies, visualization, and mapping tools.”
Northeastern’s reputation as an experiential powerhouse was cemented decades ago. Today, US News and World Report ranks it first for internships and co-ops. The university’s network comprises over 3,100 global corporate partners who are ever-willing to put their trust in its students and graduates.
CSSH master’s students have found positions at the Office of the Attorney General of Massachusetts, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Massachusetts Office of the Inspector General, Indigo Agriculture, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), and several other esteemed organizations.
Many learners use this opportunity to spark positive change in the world by confronting social, economic, and environmental problems. For instance, Rose Leopold (Security and Resilience Studies`17) examined the resiliency of Boston’s Logan International Airport for her final project and presented to a state government agency. Currently, she consults as an emergency management specialist for Facebook.
Antonio Vázquez Brust (Urban Informatics `17) completed an internship at the American City Coalition, a non-profit focused on neighborhood revitalization. He later returned to his native Argentina, where he launched a new data lab at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella’s School of Government.
If you’re an international student, you can take advantage of Northeastern’s co-op program after your first academic year before following in the footsteps of tomorrow’s world-changers.
