College is certainly a unique experience, though it shouldn't be seen as a way to increase your salary in the future. Do not be too overconfident in taking difficult classes.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018

Boston University provides a rigorous curriculum taught by faculty who also work in the fields they teach. I earned my undergraduate degree in journalism from BU and was trained by some of the best professionals out there. When it was time to earn a master's degree, BU was my first choice because I know the high quality education that institution provides.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

BU has a great program for getting an MBA to further your career. BU is ranked #42 for it's part time MBA program in 2017 and has a wonderful staff that will help you learn in any concentration you desire. I am currently taking a lot of finance and management classes in the hopes of getting into corporate finance, rotational management or commercial real estate.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

Boston University School of Theology offers much in the way of academic rigor. The faculty are kind and engaging, demanding high level work with a serious commitment to scholarship. The school offered time for professional development and practical application of the course content in real world environs. If you are looking for a theological school that offers a Christian perspective while not shying away from critical investigation, Boston University School of Theology should be high on your list.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2019

The Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine (BUGSDM) is one of the most academically advanced dental schools in America. They are constantly creating new courses to challenge their students and expose us to the widest degree of material possible. Implementing an Implantology course, the first of its kind, and use of systems such as Gailleos CBCT scans and digital dentistry makes BU Dental the best choice! With a friendly uncompetitive environment, students help each other study and practice clinical dentistry. BUGSDM also has a large extracurricular activity selection ranging from club sports to hundreds of volunteering opportunities both dental based and not. Our didactic curriculum is very advanced in the first year which allows us students to take our Part 1 National Board Exam during the following summer. We also have the opportunity to learn preclinical dentistry from some of the best professors in the world in our simulation learning center during our first and second years. Another aspect that sets BUGSDM apart is our Group Practice model for our clinic. These groups are assigned your first year and you stay in your group until you graduate. This allows for a tight knit family experience with students from every year. I personally believe that BUGSDM is the best dental school and I have enjoyed every minute of my experience so far!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Boston University houses a wide variety of tremendous instructors with years of expertise who are open and willing to engage students. Some professors are working practitioners who bring their current cases to class to apply concepts to real life examples. The work you engage in class will directly apply to field practice in the same week, allowing students to make connections from theory to real life models.Many of the professors I've worked under have been very intentional about meeting student's needs and incorporating themes of diversity and meeting cultural competence. I feel very prepared to graduate and enter into the field with the knowledge I've gained from BU.
