BLS is a degree, not a major or a special program.
BLS students who have not declared a major will be advised by the BLS advisor, undeclared BA/BS students are advised in Academic Services. BLS students are no different than other students on campus, & can make use of all campus facilities, pursue any major, receive financial aid, do an internship, join clubs, & all do the other things college students do at UMW. To include living on campus & studying abroad.
