Quiet space to study

General studies

Not sure what you want to major in yet? That's okay! At Bluffton, we will help you build a framework for your college and life experiences.

During your first semester and final year in college, you’ll be mentored by professors who will lead you through Design Your Life, a curriculum originally developed by Stanford University and adapted for Bluffton students.

Working though the Design Your Life program and exploring your strengths and interests will help you choose a major and life goal.
