Hub Courses

Please note: Course lists on the Hub website show all of the courses approved to carry Hub units, but they do not indicate which Hub courses will actually be offered in a given semester. For up-to-date information on Hub course offerings for a specific semester, please visit the University Class Schedule on the Student Link or the BU Course Search. 

In the Hub, students can pursue their interests by taking courses across BU’s 10 undergraduate schools and colleges as they fulfill their general education requirements. How students experience learning in the Hub is up to them–the program is designed to integrate with a student’s major studies while encouraging exploration. Students can select from a wide range of courses that carry Hub units, both in and outside of their major.

Certain programs of study fulfill most or all Hub requirements, including the Core Curriculum (CAS), the College of General Studies, and Kilachand Honors College.

In addition, students can earn Hub units while studying abroad in BU Study Abroad programs.
