Course Descriptions

Course descriptions for current classes may be viewed in the Class Schedule by searching for a class by college, department, and class number combinations; or searching by instructor name, class subject, meeting time or by online status, and then clicking on the specific class of interest. It is not necessary to log in to use the Class Schedule on the Student Link. Course descriptions for all classes with various keywords in their descriptions may additionally be viewed by this class subject keyword search.

Current students may print course descriptions from the Student Link for the classes they have taken. If the descriptions are not available online for previous students, please submit a request in writing. If requesting course descriptions for all Boston University classes taken, please indicate that all the course descriptions are required. There is no charge for this service.
