Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So I just wanted to talk to you guys a little bit about the actual classes here A B, C. And have touched on them in a few different videos. Just to answer them all in one video to make this easier for you guys, I thought I would tell you guys about them now. So the first question is about the student faculty ratio. So as a freshman, you're probably going to be in a few classes. There are about thirty people in a class with, like one professor and those air for some of the classes, mostly for like philosophy and theology as well as some of the English classes. Um, yeah, and then for some of the science classes that you have to take, or a bunch of the other intro level classes, those will probably be more lecture hall style classes with a professor who has office hours as well tia's, or teaching assistant, that you can go to or email who also have office hours. So if you have any questions, you can also talk to them. So the next question is about your relationship with your professors. You can definitely reach out to your professors and get a better relationship with them. This will help if you're maybe struggling in a class to go to their office hours, or if you just really find a professor particularly interesting and you want to get to know them, they're really open. Tio having relationships with the students and all the professors here really love being professors and teaching the students at BC. So they're definitely really open to getting relationships on. For if you're in the field and you want to learn more about it, all right. So I'm pretty sure all professors are required to have at least three office hours per week. So those Khun B at any time throughout the week, and a lot of the ways that professors will do it is they'll have, like Two Days week, where they have two hours each. A lot of the professors will also have office hours by appointment. So if you have a class during the office hours that your professor has available, you can always email them and um, ask them to set up different office hours, or you can just email them if you have a question, but they're really open to giving help. If you definitely need help, I would definitely go to office hours or just reach out to your professor to see any advice he has on helping to clarify the material for you. So last is definitely as you progress in your academic career. Here at Boston College, classes definitely tend to get smaller, So as a underclassmen, your classes will predominantly probably be of larger sizes. So you'll definitely have teaching assistants, and they might be more lecture style. As you move up and this obviously depends on the major butt, um, as you move up in your academic path, your classes will generally get smaller and more discussion based, which is really nice, especially when you're getting Mohr like specific classes as post like Inter to psychology. Um, there'll be more specific, and those classes will generally be smaller.
