Non-credit Programs

Open to rising sophomores, juniors and seniors, these are short (two and three-weeks long) non-credit courses that give students the opportunity to  "try out" college by participating in undergradute level course work and extra and co-curricular activities while living on the Boston College campus.

The short programs are designed specifically to introduce students to academic areas of interest and explose them to broad disciplines of study.

BCE students supplement classroom learning with guest speakers, experiential learning activities, and subject related field trips.

Broaden your understanding of college major and career options through this fun and engaging program!
