Why the Morrissey College?

When students enter Boston College, they take the first steps on a journey of discovery—one that stimulates their intellectual, personal, ethical, and spiritual growth. Morrissey College programs ask students to learn about themselves, their communities, and the world, to search for truth wherever they go, and to use their talents to improve the lives of others.

Those who seek an education that lasts a lifetime will find the challenge and support to build meaningful and fulfilling futures.

Stokes Hall

Stokes Hall, completed in 2013, is a
183,000-square-foot building devoted to
the humanities at Boston College.

I believe that what the world most needs from Boston College is for it to thrive as a leading research university that is distinguished by a commitment to rigorous and formative undergraduate liberal education—one that inspires depth of thought, creative imagination, and reflective discernment. Boston College should educate students who are well-prepared to live meaningful lives and vocations; men and women who are ready to take responsibility for promoting the common good and shaping a more just world.

The Liberal Arts Advantage

A Boston College liberal arts education compels students to think and learn across disciplines, prepares graduates for a range of rewarding careers, and helps them discern who they want to be—and why.
