Engaging the needs of our world

Our Jesuit tradition encourages us to judge our success as an institution by who our students become. At Boston College, we hope our students become women and men of depth of thought and creative imagination, who are ready to engage the needs of our world and well-prepared for meaningful lives of leadership, scholarship, and service.
Gregory Kalscheur, S.J., Dean, Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences

The Boston College Difference

Undergraduates encounter the defining works and ideas that have shaped history, and learn how to think across disciplines and communicate effectively in an increasingly complex world.

A liberal arts education develops critical thinking, ethical reasoning, creative imagination, and the habits of character necessary to flourish in meaningful careers and promote the common good.

Explore your academic path: What brings you joy? What are you good at? What does the world need? These three questions at the heart of the Jesuit, Catholic process of discernment can guide your choice.
