Jesuit Values

Jesuit, Catholic values are deeply embedded in our culture as part of our University heritage. They guide us in everything we do, from developing new courses to each one-on-one interaction.

Core Values

Intellectual Inquiry

Sincere Care for Individuals and Communities

Search for the Truth in All Things

Using Knowledge in the Service of Others

Faith Traditions

Boston College celebrates its Catholicism in many ways, including daily Mass and the annual Mass of the Holy Spirit. It also welcomes people of all faith traditions and encourages students to explore their spirituality and engage in discussions of faith-based issues.

Preparing Principled Professionals

All of our graduate programs incorporate ethical requirements, ensuring we prepare principled professionals. These course offerings have an ethical focus

Health Ethics and Law has been my favorite class because it challenges you to think outside of the box while analyzing critical ethical dilemmas and learning about vital ethical principles related to the law. Dr. Beshansky relates classwork to real-world issues, and assignments relate to my future professional work.
