Major Selection

The degree programs at Bentley are structured to allow for major changes within the first two years of study. (Part-time Evening Students declare the major upon matriculation into a degree program. See Evening Program Admissions)

In deciding on the most appropriate major for you:

  • browse the homepages of academic departments for more information on each major and courses required
  • read the Bentley Major Selection Guide on the Virtual Kiosk.
  • attend a Major Selection Workshop offered by the Academic Advising Center 
  • discuss your options with your academic adviser
  • talk with a faculty mentor
  • explore your career options in the Office of Career Services
  • speak with the chair of the department of the intended major to learn more about the major and to officially declare your major

To declare or change your major:

  • Log into MyBentley
  • Select Student Self-Service from the left menu
  • Choose Main Menu
  • Undergraduate day/evening
  • Student Services
  • At the bottom of the menu, choose add/change major/minor
  • Choose the major or minor you want to change to then hit submit (note:  you must have a major in order to declare a minor)
  • Confirm changes
  • Print form and obtain the signature of the department chair or designee of the intended major on the form

Once the major declaration or major change process is complete:

  • the Registrar’s Office will create a Degree Audit Summary (DAS) for you in the new major
