Exploring Beyond the Traditional Major with an Interdisciplinary Degree

BXA Intercollege Programs


Bachelor of Humanities and Arts (BHA) Program
The Bachelor of Humanities and Arts (BHA) Program is an interdisciplinary program designed for academically and artistically talented students who want to develop their interest in the fine arts, while also pursuing studies in the humanities and social/behavioral sciences. The most important aspect of the BHA program is for students to blend their interests, and to explore the connections between their chosen disciplines. The program also provides enough flexibility for students to broaden or deepen their concentrations, and to explore other areas in which they may be interested.

Bachelor of Science and Arts (BSA) Program 
The Bachelor of Science and Arts (BSA) Program combines the strengths of the College of Fine Arts and the Mellon College of Science. This interdisciplinary degree is designed for students who are gifted in both the fine arts and the natural sciences or mathematics, and who have the interest and the exceptional ability to pursue both disciplines simultaneously.

Bachelor of Computer Science and Arts (BCSA) Program 
The Bachelor of Computer Science and Arts (BCSA) Program was created by the College of Fine Arts and the School of Computer Science. It provides an ideal technical and conceptual foundation for students interested in pursuing fields which comprehensively meld technology and the arts such as game design, computer animation, computer music, interactive stagecraft, robotic art and other emerging media.
