Details about the program

  • Enrollment in a course does not oblige the participant from completing the additional courses required for a Certificate in Jesuit Studies. Only those earning 15 credits (or more), however, will receive a Certificate in Jesuit Studies. Participants may set their own pace for completing the program. They must participate in the leadership seminar.
  • Enrollment in the program’s various components is limited, especially in the immersion travel and leadership seminar.
  • Individuals must apply to participate in each aspect of the program. Those already pursuing the Certificate will receive preferential enrollment in the courses.
  • Tuition costs associated with courses are set each year by the Trustees of Boston College and are subject to yearly increases.
  • Financial assistance may be available and is determined by the Institute on a case-by-case basis.
