Not Knowing Your Major Isn’t Major

It’s your journey. Choose your path. We’ll walk with you.

Not sure what you want to study in college? It’s time to explore! In Ithaca College’s distinctive Exploratory Program, you can take classes in a variety of fields, receiving guidance and hands-on experience to find the major that’s right for you. Expert faculty and advisors will work closely with you to develop a personal educational plan so that you maximize opportunities to take courses in academic fields of interest to you (some of which you may not yet know exist!) while staying on track to graduate.

IC’s Exploratory Program also offers special resources to help you create a map for the college experiences you want—including extracurriculars, work, research, internships, and study abroad.
