How do I change my major?

Admitted to BU and you would like to request to have your major changed for admission, please email buadmiss@bloomu.edu and include your full name, BU ID number and the new major.

With 55 bachelor's degree programs, Bloomsburg University is the right fit for more than 9,000 undergraduates.

Building on the long tradition of teacher education, today's BU is a comprehensive university where students earn bachelor's degrees in science and technology, business, health care, social sciences, liberal arts ... and, of course, teacher education.

An honors program for academically talented students, exchange agreements with institutions worldwide and an emphasis on civic engagement add to the atmosphere of learning at BU.
