    School Overview

    Founded in 1839, Boston University is one of America's largest and most respected private research universities. It offers a unique combination of academic excellence and social relevance for its more than 33,000 students from 135 different countries.

    It's in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it. 

    Boston University has a rich and distinguished history of support for Civil and Women's Rights. BU was the first university to open all divisions to female students, the first American university to award a Ph.D. to a woman, the first in the U.S. to award a medical degree to a black woman, and the first to graduate a black psychiatrist. Boston University Medical College was the first coeducational medical college in the world, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. chose Boston University as a place to hone his message of peace and social justice in the 1950s, graduating with his Ph.D. in Theology from BU in 1955.
