Boston College Experience Program


One Program With Three Academic Concentrations

BCE students have the unique opportunity to enroll in college-level classes in one of three academic concentrations. Most students choose two courses from an interdisciplinary course list. Additionally, students can apply for one of two intensive academic concentrations;  Writers in the Making or the BC Math Experience.  The writing and math concentrations are designed for students interested in pursuing careers in these fields

With classes in numerous disciplines, students choose which courses to take and have the opportunity to earn college credit. Residential students will enroll in two courses during the program and commuter students have the option to enroll in up to two courses but are only required to enroll in one.

Advising and Course Selection

Students’ formal curriculum is complemented by activities designed to broaden each student’s experience. Academic advising by professors and counselors assists students in their summer study as well as in planning for future studyBCE Peer Advisors in the residence hall help to give insight into what life both inside and outside of the classroom is like in the university setting. You should indicate on your application which concentration and courses you are interested in taking but this is just to help us guage interests. Course selection and registration will occur in April.
