Majors and Minors
Brandeis students may choose from among 43 majors and 45 minors offered in four broad areas: the creative arts, the humanities, the sciences and the social sciences. A number of these programs are interdisciplinary by design and draw faculty from several different departments. Nearly half of our undergrads pursue a double major, often in fields on opposite ends of the academic spectrum. Students may pursue up to a triple-major and/or triple-minor.
All students have until the end of sophomore year to declare a major, allowing them to explore long-standing interests and discover new intellectual passions before deciding on a course of study. Brandeis also offers students the opportunity to create their own Independent Interdisciplinary Major and pursue a focused program of study tailored to their individual interests.
