Overview

For one week this summer, explore fascinating subjects, make new friends, and become familiar with college life at Boston University.

Boston University's one-week non-credit Summer Preview program offers a choice of seminars to rising high school freshmen and sophomores. Take advantage of this opportunity to explore 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

Summer Preview combines academic, residential, and social opportunities. In your chosen seminar, you’ll attend lectures alongside a small group of motivated peers, gaining exposure to a specific area of academic interest. Along with your studies, you will dive into college life at Boston University and start friendships with students from around the world. You will also benefit from a college workshop designed to help you maximize your high school studies and prepare you to fill out college applications when the time comes.

Summer Preview is open to both commuter and residential students. Please note that you must be 14 years or older to live in the dorm.
