Helpful resources on selecting a major and making the most of your first two years…

Exploratory programs provide you the opportunity to become acquainted with potential careers or majors of your interests. You may stay in the exploratory track until you have completed 24 credit hours toward your AA Liberal Arts degree, at which time you will be required to select a more specific academic track by contacting your counselor. Once you learn your strengths and interests, you can narrow your focus to a specific area in fields such as nursing, psychology, history, accounting, art, etc.
