As Boston University’s largest academic division, the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences is the heart of the BU experience. Undergraduates choose from more than 2,500 courses in the humanities, natural and social sciences, and mathematics and computer science, and pursue BA programs in more than 70 majors and minors. Graduate students can earn an MA or PhD in nearly 50 fields of the humanities; the natural, social, and mathematical sciences; theology; and music. A robust and productive learning environment awaits everyone who enrolls here.
Distinguished faculty, committed to exemplary teaching, rigorous scholarship, and cutting-edge research assure a rich academic journey across the liberal arts and sciences disciplines. At the same time, a team of academic advisors provides one-on-one guidance that creates a small-college experience at the core of a large and bustling research university.
Scholarship and research span the gamut of intellectual endeavor—art history to astronomy, philosophy to physics, as well as literature, language, life sciences, political science, religion, mathematics, and computing. New programs in marine science, neuroscience, and Muslim cultures and societies are just a few examples of recent developments that support our dedication to strengthening interdisciplinary research and teaching excellence, while fulfilling our potential as a global research university.
