Brock Scholars Major (B.S.B.A.)-Fellows

Brock Scholars are selected annually through a rigorous application process in the spring of the freshman year. The program allows students the flexibility to create their own unique curriculum, coupled with international travel, student research, hands-on experience through internships, and a high degree of faculty involvement.
