Major Exploration

The Major Exploration LLC helps Undeclared students in the Division of University Studies transition from high school to college in an encouraging and supportive environment during the search for the perfect major. Although it can feel confusing when surrounded by peers who appear to have it all figured out, the Major Exploration LLC helps students recognize that taking a semester or two to explore majors is a smart choice before declaring a major. The First Year Seminar along with intentional academic advising, introduces students to majors and academic skills needed to navigate the first year of college.
