Boston University is a private research university in Boston, Massachusetts. Founded in 1839 by Methodists in Newbury, Vermont, the institution first moved to Boston in 1867 before becoming religious indepentent in 1871.
Boston University is no small operation. With over 35,000 students from more than 130 countries, over 10,000 faculty and staff, 17 schools and colleges, and more than 300 programs of study, our three campuses are always humming, always in high gear.
Changing the world is part of our identity. Every year, we field thousands of students and researchers overseas, host thousands of foreign students and scholars on our three Boston campuses, and offer a curriculum infused with a global consciousness.
Boston University is anything but insular. We look beyond our classrooms and borders. You’ll find our students and faculty in more than 75 countries, on seven continents, including Antarctica, pursuing research, study, and service. Back on campus, stroll up and down Comm. Ave. and you’ll hear countless languages and dialects. It should come as no surprise that BU launched the nation’s first collegiate international exchange program more than a century ago. Engaging with people, ideas, and pressing issues that impact the world has always been vital to the University’s mission. Simply put, global engagement is in our DNA.
Our slice of Boston is a mosaic like no other: a swirl of languages, cultures, and religions; more than 500 student clubs; shows and lectures; a state-of-the-art fitness center; a slew of pubs and restaurants; and the thrills and spills of Terrier ice hockey.
The BU Hub is our University-wide general education program. In the Hub, students explore a broad array of disciplines and ways of thinking as they prepare to navigate an increasingly complex and interconnected world. The Hub helps students develop skills that will equip them to thrive in their personal, professional, and civic lives.
Honors College undergrads are part of a new approach to liberal education. Pursue a major in one of BU’s schools and colleges, such as Arts & Sciences, Management, Fine Arts, and Engineering, while completing Honors College seminars, studios, and a keystone project. Cocurricular activities include lectures, readings, and performances on- and off-campus.
