If you're still unsure about what you want to study in college, that's okay. It's why we have the exploratory studies program. At Butler, we encourage students to take advantage of the college experience to explore their options and discover the path that best suits their values, interests, and goals. And it's one of our most popular majors for incoming first-year students.
The gateway course to the exploratory studies program is LC103, where you discover more about your personal values, decision-making style, and skills in order to determine an appropriate area of study. Through job shadows, interviews, and advising from the Learning Resource Center, the program is designed to help students identify areas of interest in order to clarify appropriate majors.
There are four tracks in the Exploratory Studies program:
- Business-a College of Business program for undecided students interested in investigating all areas of business before choosing a specialty
- Education-a College of Education program for undecided students interested in investigating all areas of education before choosing a specialty
- Generalist-a program for undecided students interested in investigating all areas before choosing a specialty
- Natural Sciences-a College of Liberal Arts and Sciences program for undecided students interested in investigating majors within the sciences
