BXA Admission Requirements
Students may enter the BHA, BSA or BCSA program in one of two ways:
- as an incoming freshman
- as an internal transfer student
Over 50% of BXA students enter the programs as internal transfer candidates. Internal transfer students have the same admission requirements as incoming freshmen.
- Students interested in the BHA Program must apply and be admitted to both the College of Fine Arts and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
- Students interested in the BSA Program must apply and be admitted to both the College of Fine Arts and the Mellon College of Science.
- Students interested in the BCSA Program must apply and be admitted to both the College of Fine Arts and the School of Computer Science.
BHA, BSA and BCSA applicants must submit an essay of interdisciplinary intent. Applicants admitted to one of the programs in Deitrich College of Humanities, Mellon College of Science, School of Computer Science and a school within College of Fine Arts is automatically admitted into the appropriate BXA degree, with some exceptions in the School of Drama. Please check with your admissions counselor in both colleges and schools.
