From advisement to career planning, to events sponsored by the academic departments on campus, the goal of the Exploratory Studies Program is to provide you with the tools and the direction to find that major that is just right for you. At Immaculata University, we truly want you to find the path that is best suited to your needs. Along the way, you can expect to be challenged, but more importantly, expect to be changed!
The Exploratory Studies Program is especially designed for Immaculata University students who are still deciding about an academic program. As a student who has not yet declared a major, you will automatically be assigned to an adviser for undecided students and become part of the Exploratory Studies Program. With strong academic advisement at the core of your search for the right course of study, the Exploratory Studies Program will feature a number of resources and activities to help put you on the path to success in your future career.
Components of the Exploratory Studies Program include:
Students will be assigned to an academic adviser who will assist them with course selection and exploring majors of interest.
