Where will the International Studies Program take you?

We can't wait to find out.

The International Studies Program offers a flexible and rigorous interdisciplinary undergraduate major and minor in the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences that develops keen analytical skills and ethical reasoning amidst complex global dynamics.


The global coronavirus pandemic has dramatically disrupted our usual routines, but also highlighted the importance of what we study and experience in the IS Program. We will post important updates here as things develop.

  • ISP Meetup, Mondays at 4:30pm EDT: We invite IS majors, minors, faculty, staff, and friends to join us by Zoom every Monday at 4:30pm for informal community time to share stories, frustrations, gratitude, and friendship amidst the disruptions we're experiencing. 
  • Fall 2020 course registration begins April 2
    • You can now book peer advising appointments directly at www.calendly.com/bcisp; a peer advisor will send a Zoom link for the meeting. You can also always email us at isp@bc.edu with the subject line "Peer Advising."
    • Please reach out to your academic advisor now to set up a meeting so you can discuss the impact of the Provost's Spring 2020 academic policies and review your course plan and degree audit.  
    • See our list of pre-approved Fall 2020 courses, or a master list of all pre-approved electives
    • We are currently planning for a retun to on-campus instruction here and abroad, though of course contingency planning is ongoing as well.
