As an urban university in one of the nation's most historic and diverse cities, Boston University offers an exciting opportunity to engage in the stories of the city, as told by Boston's neighborhoods and people, culture, architecture, and archaeology.
Boston Studies is a series of courses that make use of Boston as a living classroom. Students explore the city's rich resources in art, history, sociology, and ecology in courses that combine classroom lectures with dynamic field experiences throughout the city.
Courses are drawn from the College of Arts & Sciences, Metropolitan College, and the College of General Studies.
