Undergraduate Study
Special Programs

Undergraduate (Departmental) Honors

The accelerated, intensive study through McCormick’s Honors Programs isn’t for everyone. However, if you’re up to the challenge, we encourage you to apply for honors in your area of study during your junior or pre-senior year, at least three full quarters before completing your degree requirements.

Certificates & Minors

The McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science offers several certificate programs and minors. These academic options broaden the scope of your knowledge and provide you with the type of interdisciplinary study that makes a McCormick degree valuable.

Cooperative Engineering Education Program

Students interested in the Walter P. Murphy Cooperative Engineering Education Program should visit Engineering Career Development on the second floor of the Ford Building.

Study Abroad

Northwestern encourages students in all of its undergraduate schools to study abroad. Study abroad is a crucial part of a well-rounded undergraduate education. Study Abroad Office staff and advisers will work closely with you to help you connect your academic and personal goals to an international credit-bearing experience.

Kellogg Certificate Program

Northwestern University and the Kellogg School of Management have partnered to create the Certificate Program for Undergraduates, an elite, four-course academic program for undergraduate students that offers early exposure to—and preparation for—careers in consulting, financial services and other data-driven professions.
