At the graduate level, the university offers more than 125 programs and awards master's, doctoral, and professional degrees.[citation needed]

Founded in 1898, the university is the home of more than 35 specialized research and education centers.[citation needed] Its main campus is located in the Fenway Cultural District of Boston. Northeastern is classified as a RU/H institution (high research activity) by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Among Northeastern's past and present faculty are several Guggenheim Fellows and a MacArthur Foundation "Genius Award" winner, a former Democratic nominee for President of the United States, and a Pulitzer Prize winner.

In 2012, Northeastern received 44,208 applications for the 2,800 seats of the fall freshman class. 32% of that year's applicants were accepted. The upward trend in application continues in 2013 where 47,322 students applied for the 2,800 freshman seats. Northeastern's cooperative education (co-op) program was one of the first of its kind in the world, with many corporate and non-profit co-op partners both in the United States and abroad. Employers have included major newspapers, popular television shows, international law firms, banks, government offices, and corporations and many Fortune 500 companies.[citation needed]
