BXA Intercollege Degree Programs

Interdisciplinary Academics + Arts

The BXA Intercollege Degree Programs empower students to combine their creative passion in the arts and their academic excellence in the humanities, social sciences, mathematics, natural sciences, computer science or engineering into one cohesive and successful profession. Unlike traditional double majors where studies are disjointed, the BXA programs offer integrated degrees that allow students to truly meld their two chosen creative and academic concentrations.

Innovative Collaboration between Disciplines

Students accepted to the BXA Intercollege Degree Programs have access to two world-renowned colleges, the College of Fine Arts and one of four others: College of Engineering, Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Mellon College of Science or School of Computer Science. The BXA Programs challenge students to utilize resources from both colleges to explore and develop an interdisciplinary approach that is uniquely their own.

Humanist, Scientist, Artist

A BXA degree prepares students for graduate study and various careers, including traditional graduate training in the arts or academic areas, positions in arts and education nonprofits like museums and foundations, and technical positions within media and technology companies.
