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 the always active Student Union and a growing number of student-led groups, giving you the opportunity to connect with your peers on issues you care about. BUSSW students are also a part of the Greater Boston community, and many volunteer their time at local organizations, leading drives, marches 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.
