Studying in Boston means that the entire Boston and New England area becomes a resource and a research site. Consortium arrangements with Tufts University, Boston College, and Brandeis University (the Inter-University Consortium) enable graduate students to share library facilities and to take courses for credit in these schools.  The Graduate Consortium in Women’s Studies at MIT links BU with eight other area schools to advance work in Women’s and Gender studies.

Within the University, students often work with research centers and institutes such as the Institute on Culture, Religion and World Affairs, African Studies Center, Institute for Economic Development, American and New England Studies Program, Center for Law and Health Sciences, School of Public Health, School of Social Work, Elie Wiesel Center for Judaic Studies, Center for International Relations, Center for the Study of AsiaWomen, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program and the Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer Range Future.
