The Exploratory program is designed for students who know they want to attend college but are not yet ready to select a major. The program’s unique process allows students to connect their interests, abilities, skills, values, personality and preferences with the more than 30 areas of study available at the University.

 As an Exploratory student, you will:

  • Participate in the Women as Empowered Learners and Leaders (WELL) program, which combines academics, social connections, career preparation and leadership skill development to heighten self-awareness and decision-making abilities
  • Utilize the Sullivan Career and Life Planning Center to find job shadowing and internship opportunities, schedule informational interviews and explore various career paths
  • Work with an Exploratory Advisor to learn about the majors you are interested in, including course requirements, internships and career opportunities, with the goal of selecting a traditional major
