A MAP for undecided students
Not sure what you want to major in? Don’t worry, you're not alone. Many students immerse themselves in our core curriculum their freshman
year and quite naturally discover the academic path they want to pursue.
And we provide you with lots of help. Our Major Adventures Program (MAP) is designed to help you explore your interests and aptitudes. We'll work with you to help you determine a major and potential career path you can be passionate about.
At St. Bonaventure, you'll start your intellectual journey through our core curriculum, called Clare College. These courses encourage the exploration of our intellectual, cultural, moral and spiritual heritage across several paths of study.
Instead, you and your adviser will work together to build a schedule that makes sense for your future goals.
St. Bonaventure instills in students a real passion for learning. You won't get bogged down memorizing disjointed information for different classes. Instead, our professors kick monotony out the door, creating a curriculum that connects disciplines and makes you think.
We believe it's our focus on connection — between people, places, events and ideas — that makes our curriculum so extraordinary.
