Visit the College of Communication

The graduate affairs team invites prospective and incoming students to visit the College of Communication (COM). We understand that choosing a graduate school is a personal decision; therefore we like to arrange one-on-one appointments with each student to best answer individual questions.

Visiting students will have the opportunity to speak with a current graduate student and attend a tour of the college. Our office is open for appointments Monday through Friday from 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

To schedule an appointment please email We look forward to meeting you!

Prospective Student Information Sessions

For those who are unable to visit us during the work week, we will be hosting Saturday Prospective Student Information Sessions. At these information sessions, you will be able to learn about the College, BU, your program(s) of interest, funding your education and go on a tour of the COM building and BU campus! Graduate Affairs staff and current students will be present.

We recommend that students who have already been accepted for Fall 2017 do not attend these sessions.
