The MSMS curriculum is a total of 36 credits; please refer to your handbook below for more details.
Your MSMS Handbook is a reference document that delineates the current policies and procedures for MSMS students. Students should become familiar with the policies and use the Handbook as a resource throughout their program. You can find the handbook here.
You will receive information on how to register yourself into courses for the upcoming semester.
Failing to update a BU Alert number every semester is the most common issue that keeps you out of compliance. In order to register for the Summer semester, you must be in compliance with all University policies, including meeting all immunization requirements, settling your student account, acknowledging the Massachusetts Motor Vehicle Law, and having a current BU Alert number on record. To check your compliance status, click the purple “Personal” tab, and then select “Compliance Status.”
