Research & Study Programs


Undergraduate mathematics students have many options to study mathematics at levels above and beyond what is solely offered through coursework. Possibilities include:

  • Semester-long programs (outside of BU): there are a few intense semester-long programs in the U.S. and Europe where highly motivated students can take math courses (taught in English). These programs allow students to be immersed in mathematics for a significant period of┬átime, and to interact with other talented students from across the country.
  • Summer research programs (REUs): there are many NSF-funded programs across the U.S. for students to participate in research projects during the summer.
  • UROP at BU: UROP is designed to help Boston University full-time undergraduate students become involved in research.
