Exploring Majors and Careers

Exploratory Studies was created to provide a "home" for students who were undecided about their major or who were interested in more than one major. Exploratory Studies' vision is to provide its students with guidance and the freedom to explore and identify their academic and career opportunities.

Exploring majors and careers can be an exciting, yet time-consuming process. Purdue has more than 200 majors leading to a virtually limitless number of career opportunities.
