Exploratory Studies is for students who have not declared a major yet. We will connect you with campus-wide resources including supportive academic advising, workshops about student success, specific majors and careers, and easy access to tools to help you answer the question, “What’s your major?”
"Exploratory Studies gives you more time to think and allows you to find your different interests," says sophomore Kayla. "You want to take a class in one topic and take a class in another topic, you're allowed to do that because you're trying to figure out what you like."
