Welcome, Explorers!

Here you will find information about the Pathways Program experience: Our unique academics, advising support, and vibrant community!

Choose your own path. Discover yourself. Enjoy every step of the way.

As a student applying to college, you may worry about choosing a major. You may feel as if it’s a huge decision that will determine the course of your life. But your future is full of options, and the truth is that you and many other students may not know what career path they want to take. Studies show that most students change majors at least once during college. And that’s nothing to worry about—the route you take is bound to evolve in exciting ways as you grow and learn about new interests.

That’s why we at Ithaca College are proud to offer our unique Exploratory Program. Unlike the "undeclared" status you might find at other schools, IC offers a faculty-driven program of inquiry that is bolstered by professional guidance and designed to help you find your own path and get you ready for a successful future.
