Going Global

Meaningful Engagement with the World Around You

One of the most exciting prospects of being a member part of the University Honors Program community is the varied opportunities we provide to explore the globe—enabling students to study, work, perform research and service as they develop collaborations and friendships with individuals from diverse cultures.

Today’s challenges and opportunities do not recognize boundaries or borders. The University Honors Program at Northeastern encourages its students to explore, produce, and practice knowledge within this global context. It offers multiple global opportunities featuring an integrated academic and experiential methodology intended to prepare students to be global citizens. These programs are led by our innovative and inquisitive faculty, who act as guides, mentors, and collaborators in these shared global experiences.

Through Honors Dialogues of Civilizations, global co-op options, and Honors seminars that embed a faculty-led global experience, Honors students exercise their cultural competencies, broaden their global mindset, and in virtually all cases, have life-changing experiences.

Between the global experiences offered through the University Honors Program, and Northeastern as a whole, you can experience life in every continent. From exploring Costa Rican volcanoes, trekking along a centuries-old pilgrimage trail in Spain, to serving the local community in Otovalo, Ecuador, Honors offers its students the opportunity to pursue an enriching global experience aligned with their aspirations and goals.
