Declare a Specialization

  • Declaring a specialization is optional.
  • A specialization can be declared at any time before the end of the final semester of study.
  • Students may select up to two specializations, assuming that they can complete both specializations' requirements during their time at Brandeis IBS.
  • The specialization appears on the transcript. 
  • The number of credits needed for a specialization does not increase the number of credits you need to take for your degree.
  • Students should not focus on a specialization instead of core required courses, but make a plan that successfully incorporates the specialization into their degree program.
