    Get a taste of college life for one exciting week this summer, from anywhere in the world. Delve into fascinating subjects. Make new friends. Get to know more about Boston University.

    Boston University's one-week non-credit Summer Preview program offers rising eighth, ninth, and tenth graders a choice of three different weeklong, noncredit seminars. It’s a great opportunity for you to dig into an area of academic interest or become familiar with an entirely new subject. This summer's seminars include:

    • Creative Writing: Finding Your Voice
    • Discovering Biology: Building Blocks of Life
    • Introduction to Business: Investing in Your Future

    Summer Preview combines academic and social opportunities. In your chosen seminar, you’ll attend lectures alongside a small group of motivated peers and gain exposure to a specific area of academic interest. Along with your studies, you’ll meet and start friendships with students from around the world. This summer, a variety of remote activities will introduce you to BU, to college life, and to each other. You’ll also benefit from a college workshop designed to help maximize your high school studies, so you’re prepared to fill out those college applications when the time comes.

    Summer Preview is remote only in summer 2021.
