How can we work together to promote better cultural understanding worldwide?

Qais Akbar Omar (GRS’16), a graduate student in the Creative Writing Program, has published a much-praised memoir, A Fort of Nine Towers: An Afghan Family Story. He recalls how the violence and tumult of civil war jolted his family, who, despite losing relatives, their home, and possessions, continued to nurture his wish to attend a university.

Pre-Professional Advising


If you are planning a career in the field of law or simply exploring that option, we strongly encourage you to meet with a pre-law advisor in the Pre-Professional Advising Office. The office also provides information on law-related courses offered at Boston University, internship opportunities, and the law school admissions process.

Boston University does not offer a pre-law major, but rather we encourage you to choose classes based on your interests and ability. Relevant skills include writing and oral communication and knowledge of current political and social issues.

The 2015-2016 NAPLA/SAPLA Book of Lists includes information on law programs offered by schools and universities across the country.

For more information, visit the Pre-Professional Advising: Prelaw website.


If you are interested in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, or other health-related fields, the Pre-Professional Advising Office can advise on all issues relating to your professional goals, curriculum, professional school admission requirements, and the application process. The office also organizes meetings for interested students throughout their undergraduate years and maintains an extensive pre-medical and health careers library.
