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