Studying in Boston

Big city opportunities, small town connections

CAMD is located in one of the world’s premier cities for arts, media, and design—and we’ve developed our academic programs and co-op experiences to take advantage of everything Boston has to offer. Northeastern’s campus is just steps (or a short T ride) away from the city’s cultural hubs, from world-class museums to centuries-old architecture to industry-leading newspapers. Plus, CAMD and the Center for the Arts invite artists and experts to campus, enabling students to better connect with leaders in their fields.

Boston is critical to our students’ success

CAMD students are immersed in Boston’s rich history, culture, intellect, and innovation, making the city a living laboratory for research and learning. See how Boston plays an integral role in each department across the college while providing a broad array of opportunities for students.
