Background

Students interested in activism will have opportunities to explore social movements, advocacy, and citizenship in a wide array of situations. These opportunities arise from the wealth of advocacy organizations in Boston; the access Northeastern University students have to co-op experiences nationally and internationally; and Northeastern University’s Service Learning Program. Coursework in a variety of departments will enable students to successfully apply different skill sets and knowledge bases to future work as lawyers, non-profit activists, community organizers, lobbyists, and volunteers.
