A hands-on, real-world experience for creative-minded students
Northeastern is a world leader in cooperative education (or, “co-op”), the university’s signature experiential learning program where students gain up to 18 months of hands-on, professional experience related to their academic major or career interests. Co-op provides CAMD students the opportunity to explore potential career paths, make valuable industry connections, broaden perspectives, and acquire the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as future leaders—all while learning and growing outside the comfort zone of the classroom.
Breadth and depth of opportunities
What makes the CAMD co-op so unique? It starts with the opportunity for students to work in a wide range of creative fields across industries and around the world. From animation to costume design to model making. From small theaters to major studios to prestigious architectural firms. From Amazon and Universal Music Group to NBC Nightly News and the Boston Globe. From New York and Los Angeles to Spain, Switzerland, England, and Brazil.
These opportunities are built on strong co-op partnerships developed over many years. Many of our co-op faculty coordinators have worked at CAMD for over a decade, building close relationships with a diverse set of local, national, and global employers.
