About Arts & Sciences

The College of Arts and Sciences is the oldest and largest of the undergraduate colleges of the University. It offers either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree, depending upon the major discipline, and prepares its graduates for careers in a broad range of fields as well as graduate training in both professional and academic disciplines.

In the College of Arts and Sciences a student's program consists of required courses from the Boston College core curriculum, intensive study in a major field, and a choice of individual electives reflecting a student's personal interests.
