The General Studies Program offers personalized advising and mentoring, enabling students to explore their interests, access support, and connect with the Northeastern community.
In order to set our students up for a great first year, we provide three elements of staff and peer support: dedicated academic advisors and instructors, peer mentors in and out of the classroom, and nationally certified peer tutors.
The first semester of the course covers major exploration, deconstructing academic arguments, and reflection on learning strategies.
With the goal of preparing our students for the writing which they will do from day one until graduation all GSP students will take two writing courses as part of the program.
All students can benefit from academic and career exploration to ensure a good fit major.
