Undecided on a Major?

Many of our Schools and Colleges have an undeclared option, and it’s perfectly fine to explore different academic pathways before making a decision. BU does not require you to declare a major until your sophomore year.

As an incoming first-year student at University Orientation, you’ll sit down with an academic advisor who can help you explore courses and figure out what you may want to do.

Please note: transfer students must declare a major before applying to BU.
