Interested in BDIC?

The best way to find out whether BDIC right for you, is by meeting with one of our Peer Advisors. These are current BDIC majors who can discuss with you your ideas and goals for an individualized concentration and help you figure out whether BDIC is the right major for you.

There are no Information Sessions available in the summer. Please call the office to make an appointment.

You can attend one of our information sessions that occur everyday.

The process for becoming a BDIC major starts with applying for admission to the required, 1-credit Proposal Writing Class (BDIC 396P). This class is where you will formulate the ideas for your BDIC concentration in detail. Applications are due on November 15th for the Spring class and on April 10th for the Fall class.
