With its glorious alpine setting, a multitude of important global organizations, and a certain sense that everything is “just so,” Geneva is a marvelous place to live and study.
Of our four programs in Geneva, one offers physics majors an incredible opportunity to work at the CERN Laboratory. The other three programs are geared toward students on an international relations and/or public health track. These students consistently report being in awe of the high caliber lecturers and class visitors who come from the WHO, Red Cross, UN, or other organizations. Housing is in Boston University’s residence hall in the center of the city, with good public transportation very close by.
Places to visit are numerous from this centrally located country famous for its rail network. From snowshoeing in the Alps or trips to Italy, France, Austria, and other countries, a semester in Geneva is a global experience in every way.
