Exploratory Studies Explore. Discover. Decide

The Exploratory Studies Process

Exploratory Studies provides beginning college students the best guidance and the broadest overview of a range of academic and career possibilities. Our advising staff encourages students to proactively research and understand their degree plans of study, interview and network with student and alumni resources, and critically comb through career information. We further educate students about the career decision-making process as part of the required EDPS 10500 Academic and Career Planning course. Students who begin their college experience with Exploratory Studies may remain in our program for no more than four semesters.
