AIM: Calendar & What to Expect

As announced by the president and provost on Tuesday, April 7, Boston University has cancelled on-campus programming for Summer 2020. The nature of the Academic Immersion: Introduction to Medicine and Creative Writing tracks do not make them feasible options for remote learning. For that reason, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel Introduction to Medicine and Creative Writing this year.

The Academic Immersion: Introduction to Experimental Psychology track will be moving to a remote learning environment. Click here for more details about the Introduction to Experimental Psychology remote program for Summer 2020.

The application deadline for Academic Immersion has passed.

A 3-week program

Here’s your chance to do a deep dive into a subject that fascinates you. Picture this: three stimulating weeks on campus engaging in intensive study, with classmates who feel just as passionate about a single academic topic as you do. If you’re entering your junior or senior year of high school, we invite you to apply.AIM is an intensive and rewarding three-week experience. No matter which of the three tracks you are enrolled in, useful information about what the program will be like can be found below.
