Exploratory Major and Exploratory Advising Center
If students are undecided about a direction after the first semester, they will be encouraged to enroll in Career Construction, a 1-credit hour course designed to facilitate student self-understanding that is translated into incorporating meaningful work into a satisfying and productive lifestyle. For students who remain undecided about a major, a second course, Career and Life Planning, is offered to examine strategies that will lead to choosing a major that matches the their life goals.
Each exploratory student is assigned an academic advisor who monitors academic progress and assists the student in choosing a degree program. Academic advisors also encourage students to take advantage of specialized advising, workshops and other university resources in developing career goals and making informed decisions. Exploratory academic advisors are housed in the Exploratory Advising Center; students have a minimum of one required meeting with an advisor each semester during the first year of study.
Because a degree cannot be earned while in the exploratory major, it is important that students declare a major or have an approved plan for major declaration by the time they have earned 45 semester hours to facilitate timely progress toward a degree.
