Admitted Students

Welcome future Terriers! As of June 1, 2018, the School of Education has a new name: We are now the Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development.

Congratulations! We are excited to welcome you to Boston University. You are now embarking on the path to become an educator as a member of our community.

Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect at Wheelock:

You can teach anywhere. Beginning your first semester, you’ll gain classroom experience in the greater Boston area. Throughout the undergraduate program, you’ll have both urban and suburban classroom experiences, and you can teach in classrooms abroad through our programs in London, Quito, and Sydney.

You can earn two degrees. Students can pursue BU’s Dual Degree program to earn a second bachelor’s degree in areas that complement their Wheelock degree, such as art education (College of Fine Arts) or psychology (College of Arts & Science).

You’ll learn from the best. Our faculty are dedicated to preparing outstanding professional educators, producing research that improves the practice of education, and providing excellent professional support.

You’ll gain experience in Boston. BU has a unique, 30-year collaboration with the Boston Public Schools and city of Boston, offering you a chance to improve the community through teaching, tutoring, and programs such as Upward Bound and BUILD.

You can gain exceptional training. Our college is home to an Early Childhood Learning Laboratory, which provides you with the opportunity to study and observe an actual early childhood classroom.

You’ll learn from our history. Located in the birthplace of public education in the U.S., Wheelock publishes the oldest continuously published educational journal in the United States, the Journal of Education, founded in 1875.

Again, congratulations on your admission to Boston University and welcome to BU Wheelock! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Office of Student Services.
