The Exploratory Studies program provides you with a systematic and intentional approach for discovering your interests, developing your career plan and selecting a major. The program is designed for students not yet ready to commit to a major and leverages the resources available at Heidelberg to help you make a good academic choice.
The structure of the program helps you assess your strengths, weaknesses, and life goals, through curricular and co-curricular experiences. Those students with clear goals and abilities will be encouraged to pursue their desired academic path. Students with unclear or unrealistic goals will receive more direct help to clarify them and declare an appropriate major.
Exploratory Studies provides a helpful option if you haven't decided on a major. Your faculty advisors will provide advising and resources for you to explore all of Heidelberg's majors and your interests so you can make the best decision. You'll also be connected to Heidelberg seniors and young alumni who can talk to you about their career choices.
