Course Information and Schedule
office of student services
The Course Information and Schedule in the Agora portal now offers new and more intuitive ways to explore BC's academic offerings. This searchable schedule includes course descriptions, faculty, meeting times, and room assignments. You may search by term, school, keyword, and subject code (required for A&S courses).
You can customize your search by using filters to select course number ranges, course levels, meeting days and times, credit hours, and open or closed courses. Remember to clear your filters or Start Over when you begin a new search.
To view the undergraduate courses offered during the summer semester, be sure to select Summer (term), Woods College (school), and all (subjects).
To view the graduate courses offered during the summer semester, be sure to select Summer (term) and school (subject code required for GSAS courses).
To expand information about a course, click on More Detail to view the short course description. Click on the course title to view a more detailed course description, including any course pre- or co-requisites and Core requirements, and links to syllabi, course evaluations, and textbook information, if available. Access to course evaluation surveys and syllabi are also available from the Course Information and Schedule landing page.
