Welcome to Summer Term 2021

We have just what you're looking for! 

For over a century, Boston University Summer Term has been offering a wide range of academic opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as high school students, working adults, and others. Summer 2021 will be no different: through BU's hybrid teaching format Learn from Anywhere (LfA), we will be offering the same exceptional programming to remote and in-person students. It's your choice whether to participate in Summer Term courses remotely or to attend in Boston—the #1 student city in the US. Whatever decision you make, rest assured that you will discover rich opportunities to expand your academic horizons, enhance your skills, and experience a world-class summer program. Continue building towards your future—join us this summer at BU.
