The Woods College of Advancing Studies is one of the eight constituent schools of Boston College and offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Having been established in 1929 shortly after the founding of Boston College Law School that same year, it is the fourth oldest constituent school of Boston College.

The Woods College of Advancing Studies demands of its students the same high standards in academics, moral character and commitment to the betterment of society as is required of all of Boston College’s traditional undergraduate and graduate students. For this reason the same degree bestowed upon the students in The College of Arts and Science is awarded to students in The Woods College upon successful completion of their undergraduate work.


In May 2002 the College of Advancing Studies was dedicated in honor of its Dean, James A. Woods, S.J..
