UMass Boston


The University of Massachusetts at Boston was established in 1964 as the second campus of the University of Massachusetts system. As the state's comprehensive public urban university, UMass Boston provides a broad range of graduate and undergraduate academic programs for students of all cultural and economic backgrounds, with a special commitment to traditionally underserved populations of urban areas. The university's mission also commits it to research and service of high quality, with particular focus on urban issues and needs.
