Exploratory Workbook

For those who are interested in a more organized method of exploration, Exploratory Studies has produced a workbook titled Choosing a Major: An Exploratory Studies Guide. The workbook includes assessments for helping you understand your values, interests, personality, and skills; research projects for learning more about specific majors/careers of interest; information about what a major actually is and what it is not; questions to consider when choosing a major; and information about campus resources.

The workbook is intended to be a guidebook that you use with your advisor to explore options. Therefore, it is important that you meet with him or her regularly while going through the exercises. Your advisor can supplement the workbook with other useful materials as you work through the exercises. Contact an Exploratory Studies advisor to obtain a copy of the workbook.
