The Boston Experience

Take advantage of life beyond the classroom in the bustling cultural hub of Boston.

Whether you’re looking for ways to get involved with a student club or to take advantage of Boston’s culture and history, our close-knit community on the Charles River Campus in Boston can help. Outside the classroom, you will find a deeply engaged student body.  Tap into the numerous opportunities to do hands-on research projects, join a Student Org, or be a voice on school-wide committees focused on curriculum, racial justice, or admissions and financial aid. BU School of Social Work is home to a growing number of student-led groups including a Macro Committee, LGBTQ+ Student Committee, Social Policy Group, Students of Color Committee, as well as an Unpacking White Privilege Group—giving you the opportunity to connect with your peers on issues you care about. BUSSW students are also active members of the Greater Boston community, volunteering regularly with local organizations, leading charity walks, drives, and more.

As a graduate student at BUSSW, you can also connect with graduate students at other BU schools across the campus through University-wide organizations such as the Community Service Center and the Howard Thurman Center.
