Explore. Discover. Declare.

Exploratory Studies is a comprehensive program designed to meet the needs of students who wish to explore their options in order to find a “best fit” major. Exploratory Studies students typically make up 10-15% of each ESU entering the class. Students from our program are in every college at the University, and our students are actively engaged in university life.

Exploratory Studies academic advisors and success coach prepare undergraduate students to navigate all aspects of academic planning by promoting an atmosphere that encourages self-exploration and resource utilization in support of academic success, as well as the timely and informed pursuit of an academic major.

We accomplish this by:

  • Assisting students in the exploration of potential academic major and/or career paths;
  • Assisting students to help develop an appropriate academic plan which includes assistance in course selection
