Cooperative Education

The cornerstone of Northeastern University’s educational model

For over 100 years cooperative education (co-op) has been the cornerstone of Northeastern University’s educational model.

What started in 1909 with eight engineering students and four Boston employers as an earn-to-learn program has evolved into a research-based, integrated learning experience.

Cooperative education has been a historic strength of Northeastern University’s experiential learning brand.  Each year students at every level and at every campus location participate in this signature model of experiential learning.
