Physical Science and Engineering (Exploratory)

The Physical Science and Engineering exploratory area contains majors that are ideal for students who have an interest in pursuing engineering and computing fields or who are considering studies in chemistry, physics, or mathematics. Exploratory majors are excellent for students who are unsure about the major they want to pursue or for students who do not meet the criteria for certain majors with selective admissions. These students will have access to an academic advisor who will provide personal guidance with exploring various career options and selecting an appropriate major.
