Why Choose Sargent College?
Pursuing a career in health care has never been smarter. Perhaps no other field offers so many opportunities and rewards, both personal and professional. With our aging population, focus on health care reform, and new discoveries in areas such as genetics and neurobiology, the demand for clinical care and research continues to grow. In fact, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projections point to health care as one of the strongest growth industries of the next decade.
Once you’ve received your undergraduate or advanced degree, will you be prepared to make the most of those opportunities? To make the greatest possible difference in the lives of others? To find answers to the world’s critical health care problems? To reach your own full potential?
You will as a graduate of Boston University College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College. In all four departments, we prepare students in ways that few other schools can.
Academically, Sargent College excels. Our professional graduate programs are ranked among the top 7% in the country by U.S. News & World Report. Our faculty includes nationally and internationally recognized scholars, researchers, and practitioners. Our alumni have distinguished themselves as educators, innovators, physicians, clinicians, scientists, and humanitarians.
And our 1,200 current students? You can meet some of them on this website.

The Sargent College Advantage for Undergraduate Students
It’s your first day in your first class as a Sargent College freshman. You expected Boston University to challenge you academically. But you didn’t expect this.
The Sargent College Advantage for Graduate Students
The classroom buzzes with excited students and faculty. You see a professor approach the podium. As the room falls silent, she introduces the patient: a 62-year-old man with Parkinson’s disease. The presentation begins. No, this isn’t medical school. It’s the Interdisciplinary Grand Rounds of BU Sargent College.
