Deciding upon a Major and/or career path can be challenging. Bellarmine offers a variety of resources to assist you on this journey. The following are some suggestions for creating your own path:

  • Begin identifying your values, interests, and skills
    • Discussions with supervisors, faculty, academic advisors, and the career center
    • Career and personality assessments (available through the Career Development Center)
  • Explore various disciplines as areas of study
    • Take a general education or elective course that interests you
    • Explore various majors/minors and their requirements
  • Connect with practice-oriented experiences that help you gain the skills and confidence in a work environment, like an on-campus job, internship, etc.
  • Find a mentor or perform informational interviews with professionals in a field of interest

Majors and Minors Showcase

The Majors and Minors Showcase, co-sponsored in October by the Student Success Center and Residence Life, is an opportunity for students to explore the majors and minors that Bellarmine offers. Students who are undecided, who wish to switch majors, who would like to add an additional major, or who want to declare a minor can learn about the variety of opportunities at BU. All majors and minors are invited to select upperclassmen to represent their program at the event and host a table that showcases the curriculum and opportunities within their programs.

Current Catalog

The catalog contains important information about, and is the official source of, the university’s academic programs, courses, policies, and procedures. The catalog should be used as a guide in planning a course of study and in meeting requirements for graduation.

All statements in this catalog reflect policies in effect at the time of publication and are subject to change without notice or obligation. This includes statements of fees, course offerings, and program, admission, and graduation requirements applicable to both currently enrolled and new students. Generally, students are held to the requirements of the catalog year in which they began their Bellarmine degree program. Exceptions must be approved by the department chair and dean of the student's major (using the waiver and exceptions process) and documented with the Registrar's Office.

Bellarmine University students are responsible for knowing the policies and procedures of the university found in the catalog.
