The Capstone Seminar Program helps students to "cap off" their Boston College experience by a review of their education and a preview of their major life commitments after college. Capstone offers several integrative seminars each semester exclusively for seniors and second-semester juniors in all schools. The Capstone seminars explore the struggle to discern your own calling in life as you integrate the four crucial areas of work, relationships, society, and spirituality.
Seminars are limited to 15 to 19 students. Many Capstone Seminars are also cross-listed in the home department of the professor and can be taken for elective credit by majors or minors in that department. Department regulations vary. You may take only one Capstone course during your academic career. For information, contact the Program Director, Fr. FACHEX is an undergraduate tuition remission program for children of full-time faculty, administrators, and staff at participating Jesuit colleges and universities.
For Boston College employees, five consecutive years of full-time employment is required for establishing initial eligibility for the program. BC does not maintain admissions policies of other schools in the program, and cannot advise on their behalf. Employees should be aware, however, that FACHEX awards tend to be extremely limited in number and are highly competitive in terms of academic selectivity. As a result, there are no guarantees to the children of any given faculty or staff member that they will be able to utilize the FACHEX benefit at the institution of their choice.
Also, many participating schools only consider incoming freshman applicants for FACHEX, so transfer students or upperclassmen may not be eligible. Employees at other participating institutions should ask their respective Benefits Offices for information on requirements for eligibility. The Gabelli Presidential Scholars Program is a university-wide, 4-year co-curricular honors program that uniquely expresses the Jesuit heritage of Boston College.
Approximately 15 incoming freshmen are chosen each year from the top one to two percent of the national pool of students applying for Early Action admission to Boston College. Students are selected on the basis of superior academic achievement and promise, leadership potential, and a demonstrated commitment to service to society.
The Program offers these extraordinary individuals the richest academic experience available at Boston College, one that encourages the pursuit of excellence both within and beyond the University walls. Presidential Scholars receive a full-tuition merit scholarship. In addition to enrollment in one of the University's several departmental honors programs, during the academic year Scholars meet weekly to discuss their area of concentrations science and pre-med, humanities, political science and international studies, and management, economics and finance , to share experiences and find greater wisdom in applying for study grants, language programs, internships, and fellowships, and to partake in the cultural life of Boston at the theater or the symphony.
To complement the emphasis on ideas and ideals they encounter in their classes, and in their summer programs, Presidential Scholars also give presentations to their fellow scholars about a variety of their experiences including study abroad, Advanced Study Grants, internships and thesis writing. These presentations serve as additional avenues of inspiration to younger scholars, offering them a glimpse of the opportunities that are open to them throughout their college careers.
In addition, these presentations offer the upperclassmen scholars the opportunity to develop and refine their public speaking skills. During the spring semester freshman Presidential Scholars travel to a country in Europe, while the sophomore Scholars travel to a country in Latin America. In their sophomore year, they have an immersion experience of the social and economic challenges for our neighbors to the South.
In the summers, Scholars are challenged to test and apply what they have learned at Boston College to the world beyond the campus by participating in experiential learning programs focusing on service learning after the first year , independent international study and travel after the second year , and professional internship after the third year. Through this carefully balanced combination of academic rigor and co-curricular opportunities and challenges, the Gabelli Presidential Scholars Program seeks to develop exceptional scholars and leaders for the Boston College community and far beyond.
International programs are an integral part of the undergraduate experience at BC. BC collaborates with a variety of partner universities worldwide to administer programs in about 30 countries. Students should begin planning to go abroad as early as their freshman year.

Medical, dental, veterinary, and other health professions schools welcome qualified students from diversified academic backgrounds. Thus, the student planning to pursue a health related career may choose for a major field of study in any one of the humanities, natural sciences, or social sciences.
Below is a brief summary of the program. Health professions graduate schools expect each applicant to be well grounded in the fundamental sciences and to be familiar, through practical experience, with laboratory techniques. For these reasons, most health profession schools require one year of coursework at the college level in the following disciplines:. In addition, one year of mathematics is usually strongly recommended. Some medical schools require calculus.
This is a good option for students who have performed modestly during freshman year, since it will allow additional time to bring grades, particularly in the sciences, into a more competitive range. The average age for students beginning graduate school in the health professions is approximately 25; therefore, the applicant taking one or more gap growth year s , is increasing.

This is particularly true in the pre-accession economies of the Western Balkans and Turkey where SMEs contribute close to three-quarters of employment and around 60 per cent of value added. However, their potential remains largely untapped: SMEs are under-represented in international trade and firm-level productivity is significantly below EU standards.
This will be followed by an interactive panel session, during which SMEs can share their experiences under WB EDIF as well as exchange lessons learned and best practices on their road to success. For more information please contact: Nia Evans evansn ebrd.

Participants will focus on ways in which the transitions from low-income to middle-income to high-income status the so-called middle-income transitions have changed over time — reflecting technological progress, population aging and climate change.
For instance, knowledge-intensive services can today be exported much like manufacturing products in the past, while manufacturing itself employs fewer workers. Building social safety nets and making economic growth greener have become increasingly important elements of middle-income transitions.
