The highest undergraduate distinction.
Only offered at a few universities worldwide, the prestigious BPhil enhances your bachelor's degree in any major with an independent research thesis.
The BPhil is a highly regarded credential that requires a rigorous curriculum and independent research (under the guidance of a dedicated faculty mentor.) You'll get the opportunity to defend your work before a committee of leading scholars in your field, including an external examiner at the forefront of your topic.
The BPhil is a higher distinction that replaces your standard BA or BS degree,* jointly awarded by Pitt Honors and your undergraduate school/college.
