Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: General Education and Degree Program Information

This sample schedule is designed to ensure that an Explorations student has the opportunity to sample from the great branches of knowledge so that unexpected interests may be tapped.  In the Explorations program, you will use your General Education requirements as a route to exploring a wide range of courses and disciplines.

Best of all, you don’t have to worry about falling behind - even if you declare a major in your second year, you will still have plenty of time to complete all the course requirements for your declared major.  Furthermore, you are in good company.  Nationally, thirty to forty percent of entering college students have not decided on a major course of study.  Once you decide on a specific major, you will then step off this path to pursue the specific requirements of that major.  At that point, you will also be reassigned to an advisor within your new declared major.
