Exploratory Social and Behavioral Sciences

The exploratory social and behavioral sciences track offers students an opportunity to explore a variety of majors related to the social and behavioral sciences such as psychology, history, education, journalism and business-related careers. ASU recognizes that many students are not ready to choose a specific academic program of study when first entering the university. Allowing students the option to declare exploratory status permits students to begin meeting General Studies requirements that all ASU graduates must fulfill as well as take some time to explore a variety of academic courses that may lead to a potential major interest.

All College of Integrative Sciences and Arts exploratory students are required to enroll in the following major and career exploration courses, which must be taken sequentially:

UNI 150 Major and Career Exploration (1)
UNI 250 Choosing a Major (1)
UNI 270 Career Direction for a Successful Future (1)
