Brandeis students may choose from a variety of majors and 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 undergraduates 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. Other special academic opportunities include our dual bachelor's/master's programs and our 5-year BA/MA program offered through the Brandeis International Business School.
