The latest news and information from university administration and the academic colleges at BYU, including the latest in enrollment statistics, new classes and programs, awards and distinctions, new hires and official announcements.
For 21 consecutive years, Brigham Young University has topped the list as the most “Stone Cold Sober” university in the nation as measured by The Princeton Review.
Brigham Young University President Kevin J Worthen has named Vernon L. Heperi as Assistant to the President for Student Success and Inclusion.
Brigham Young University has created five new courses of study available to its students starting Fall Semester 2018. The four new majors and the new minor come from five different colleges on campus.
New programs and emphases are created on an as-needed basis when a department or college can demonstrate that students will benefit from a new focused course of study. Students interested in switching majors can learn more by speaking with their college advisement center.
