Metropolitan College

One of Boston University’s 17 degree-granting schools and colleges, Metropolitan College (MET) offers part-time, full-time, and international students a remarkable range of choices for study to help enrich their lives and advance their careers.

Community interaction, whether on the local or global level, has always been integral to Boston University’s mission. MET upholds that principle by making the University’s resources—intellectual, academic, and physical—accessible to a broad audience of working professionals and students of all ages, backgrounds, and nationalities.

The college provides both opportunity and flexibility for students who might not otherwise participate in learning at the University. Employing the principles of excellence, accessibility, and innovation, MET strives to reach out to diverse populations with relevant, challenging, and rewarding programs.
