Frequently Asked Questions

What if my son or daughter isn't settled on a career choice or major?

Not all students enter college knowing what they want to do for a living, the connections between majors and careers, and the vast array of major and minor possibilities. Students in the Exploratory Program pursue a wide variety of subjects. Working closely with a faculty adviser during their first two years at IC, students in the program are able to sample classes from any of the five schools. They may declare a major after their first term or stay in the program for four semesters. To help students discover their interests and passions, we have much to offer—more than 2,000 courses and over 100 degree programs.
