BU Hub Pathways

The BU Hub Pathways are an optional way for undergraduates to fulfill some or many of their general education requirements by taking Hub courses from across the University with a focus on an interdisciplinary topic of global significance that may be of particular interest to students. Hub Pathways are intended to provide thematic coherence for students who would like to engage more deeply and widely with these critical, interdisciplinary issues while fulfilling their general education requirements and building upon knowledge from other courses.

There are currently two Hub Pathways: Social & Racial Justice, and Environment & Society.

Hub Pathways are fully elective, and students can choose to incorporate as many courses within a particular Hub Pathway as they wish. Hub Pathway coursework is not tracked on a student’s record and does not come with an additional credential.
