Academics

Explore your learning options

Whether you know exactly what you plan to study or  you’re completely undecided, now is a good time to learn more about our academic departments. Each department website lists information about requirements, courses, faculty, facilities, project opportunities, and recently completed projects.

Within WPI’s three main undergraduate divisions – Arts and Sciences, Engineering, and the School of Business, you can choose from over 50 majors and programs, ranging from aerospace engineering to game development, psychology, and management. We encourage you to explore your options and find out more. Also check out the exciting research being undertaken by our faculty members, along with our impressive and impactful student project work.

You must declare your major by the end of B-term in your first year, and you will have many resources to help make this important decision. During New Student Orientation you will meet your Insight team, which consists of a Faculty Advisor, Community Advisor, and a Resident Advisor. The Office of Academic Advising also offers additional resources. Once you declare your major, you will be assigned a Faculty Advisor in your field who will meet with you regularly to discuss course selection, scheduling options, and degree requirements.
