Exploratory Options

Florida State University allows students who are unsure about their major to enter the university as “exploratory.” This is a popular choice for a significant portion of entering freshmen. Advisors will work with you at Orientation to see if your academic needs are best met by remaining “exploratory” or by selecting a major. Exploratory students are encouraged to begin looking at options at Exploring Majors Based on Interest Areas.
