Student & Graduate Reviews

4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

I picked Northeastern University because they had an online Master's program that worked with my schedule. I work full time and I have a family, so driving to school after work and sitting in class all night was not going to work for me. Even though the classes are online I feel that the professors are still well involved in your participation and your class work. They also respond to emails in a timely fashion. I am satisfied with the quality of this program and it being an online program at that.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2018

The Nonprofit Management program is a great program to enhance your knowledge of nonprofits and how to run one. Professors are experts in nonprofits and are readily available to assist you and are flexible to students who work full time and/or have families. The curriculum and textbooks contain knowledge that can be adapted to any nonprofit.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017

Northeastern University CPS offers a challenging Masters in Global Studies and International Relations that fit into my busy military schedule. I have been able to work through the online coursework to finish a degree without having it negatively impact my work. I am excited to see how my new Masters will impact my job prospects moving forward.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

Northeastern provides students with incredible amounts of resources and opportunities to ensure that they have every chance to succeed. Quality professors, a beautiful campus, and access to an incredible city made for an excellent graduate school experience.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

Northeastern is a wonderful school though the specific college that I attended, the College of Professional Studies (CPS), is little more than a night school through which they fund the less revenue-generating majors/degrees (doctoral degrees, for example). I was not impressed with the quality of education, to be honest, though I understand students attending undergraduate degree programs and non-CPS Masters/Doctoral programs are usually very satisfied with their education.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2006

I believe I learned so much from going to Northeastern. I loved the campus. It is as if you are in a small town in the big city. It was the perfect fit for me!

4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2010

Northeastern is one of the best colleges and I love the feel of the college, the location and the environment. They have many non-study activities, faculties and staff are awesome. The crowd in Northeastern is unbeatable, as well as the college placements are awesome.
3.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2010

The campus and facilities were nice and the location is wonderful. There were some good professors in my department but some really difficult ones as well, which made my time less pleasant.
