Global Pathways - Graduate level

USA

What will I learn?

Global Pathways is designed for international students who do not meet Northeastern’s English language admission requirements for their desired graduate degree program. This intensive academic program is taken for one or two semesters before admission to their program of interest.

You will participate in rigorous English language training and university skills preparation and enroll in one of two areas: the Business and Humanities Track or the Engineering, Math, and Computer Science Track. You will also take a 2-4 credit course that can then be transferred to your master’s degree.

Upon successful completion of the program requirements—as well as meeting progression requirements—you will be admitted to your graduate degree program of choice.
