The Northeastern University School Health Institute, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health School Health Unit, coordinates and provides quality, professional education programs to enhance school nursing practice throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

World Languages Center

The World Languages Center is a cooperative venture between the College of Social Sciences & Humanities and the College of Professional Studies. As Northeastern University continues to become more globally engaged and integrated, the study of languages becomes significantly more valued and more important to the success of our students.
