At a large research university known as a hub of scientific, intellectual, and cultural activity, it takes a remarkable group of students to stand out as “the doers.”
Year after year at Boston University College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College, our students do just that. They are joiners and volunteers in disproportionate numbers—exactly what you’d expect from young people pursuing careers in the helping professions. They also learn by doing, outside the classroom as well as in. Being actively involved becomes a lifelong passion for Sargent College students. Perhaps that’s why so many go on to distinguish themselves in fields from medicine to occupational therapy, athletic training to public health, nutrition to speech-language pathology.
Above all, our students are determined to make a difference. If that’s your goal too, BU Sargent College can prepare you in ways that very few schools can.
Are you considering a clinical career? We offer unusually broad experience through our clinical network: more than 1,400 worldwide clinical affiliations, including 400 in the Boston area and seven clinical centers of our own. Leaning toward research? Then consider that Sargent received more than $10 million in outside funding this year, among the highest at BU. You’ll have outstanding opportunities to collaborate on cutting-edge programs.
If you’re undecided about a specific career within the health sciences, we offer another big advantage. You can now apply for admission as an Undeclared major without entering a specific program. During your first two years, you can look into a variety of health-related career options before committing to a single program. Here again, being a “doer” helps: the breadth of hands-on experience you’ll gain can be invaluable in making your career decision.
There’s so much more to the Sargent College story. I invite you to explore our site. Contact our faculty. Feel the energy of our 1,200 students. See the amazing things we’re doing today. And just imagine the difference we—and you—can make!
