Over the past few months, Boston University has closely monitored the growing impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak both internationally and locally. Due to the increased spread of the coronavirus throughout the United States and around the world, teaching at Boston University and many of the campus operations will be transitioning to virtual. During this time, we will not be hosting any in-person walk-in visits, in-person Friday Visits or in-person Information Sessions. Many of these events have been changed to a virtual format. Please reach out to our office at (617) 358-4095 or if you have any questions.

What if…?

Public health. What it is, what it does, how it works is changing daily. And Boston University School of Public Health (SPH) is at the frontier of that evolution, propelling public health into one of the most consequential careers of our times. Public health is concerned with the social, economic, and cultural forces that create health. This includes issues of contemporary concern such as obesity, gun violence, poverty, infant mortality, LGBTQ rights, and human trafficking. If you want your own efforts to advance the world, public health is an exhilarating opportunity to do just that.
