In summer 2021, most courses will be offered under BU’s hybrid teaching format called Learn from Anywhere (LfA), which gives students the option to attend classes remotely or in person. The course sections listed on the following pages are on the LfA format, except for those designated either remote only or in-person attendance required. Please note that the format of each course is subject to change. Check back before the start of classes to confirm the format of the course(s) for which you register.

BU undergraduate students who matriculated as first-years in Fall 2018 or later need to complete BU Hub Requirements for graduation. The same is true of undergraduate students who transferred into BU beginning in Fall 2020. All BU undergraduates enrolling in Summer Term courses should consider their Hub requirements when selecting courses. Additional resources are available at
