Boston University has adopted the “Learn from Anywhere” platform that blends simultaneous in-person and remote learning for the fall 2020 semester. This approach gives GMS the flexibility to deliver excellence in graduate education and research to all our students with the highest priority on everyone’s safety. Our campus is slowly and carefully ramping up research and clinical activities. GMS faculty and staff are deep into planning “LfA” for each of our 33 programs. We are preparing for you. Make a difference at GMS.
We realize that standardized tests for all programs may be disrupted due to COVID-19 and are adapting admissions requirements accordingly. Please email your program contact directly to see if the requirement has been waived or if alternative credential may be used.
