Fall 2021

The expected efficacy of the vaccines and comprehensive immunization made possible the full return to learning in our classrooms, studios, and laboratories without the social distancing protocols that had been in use since last September. This fall, we returned to fully in-person classes with the exception of a limited number of graduate programs, which offered some courses remotely. While we will likely increasingly move toward a pre-pandemic normal, as we do so we must continue to observe existing health and safety protocols. To learn more, please visit the Back2BU website
