Exploratory Studies Course
I am so happy that I took the LC103 course, it gave
me reassurance that it was ok to be undecided and it opened my
eyes to the all majors that Butler offers. I don't think I
would have been able to confidently declare my major as I did
without the test results, job shadows, and support that
I received from the class. I would strongly recommend it to

Enrolling in LC 103 gave me the opportunity to weigh all my
options and make an informed decision that I feel confident about.

LC103: Exploratory Studies
This 2-credit course is one of the highlights of the Exploratory
Studies program. It is offered in the Fall semester of your first
year at Butler and is taught by your academic advisor. Though not
required, it is strongly recommended that each Exploratory Studies
student takes advantage of this opportunity.
What will you gain from taking this class?
- Self-Discovery: Take
assessments to learn about your strengths, values, interests, and
Exploration: Learn about the 60+ majors offered at Butler
University through class observations, faculty panels, and
interviews with professors.
Knowledge: Participate in job shadows, informational
interviews, and individual research to learn about the world of
work and how to start preparing for it now!
Not only will your advisor get to know you better by having you as
a student in class, but you will be a part of a community of
students who are also exploring their options.
