Program Details

Not sure what you want to study? Interested in many subject areas? You’re not alone. In the BA Undeclared, you can take some time to explore your options by leaving your major undeclared in first year. You can choose from a wide variety of courses and get academic advice on majors and career paths.

Explore What Interests You
Students within the BA Undeclared work with university advisors and services during their first year to assess their skills and then, after one year of exploration, they enter a major. Discover your interests, abilities and values, and learn what Carleton has to offer before deciding on your field of study. You may end up finding a passion for a new subject you hadn’t considered before.

First-Year Seminars

First-year BA students are strongly encouraged to include a First-Year Seminar (FYSM) in their first-year course load. Our First-Year Seminars will get you away from the lecture hall and give you the chance, in a small class of no more than 30 students, to discuss and explore topics with your classmates and your professors.
