Major Exploration Week

New this spring! Open to all undergrads, this week will provide opportunities for you to learn more in-depth information about majors. Look through the schedule below to see what colleges and departments are offering!

This week will provide you with opportunities to explore majors in new ways. Sit in on classes for a major of interest, hear from former DGS students about their exploration experience, learn about the transfer process for various majors on campus, get help with preparing your materials for your Intercollegiate Transfer application, and more! Take advantage of these great opportunities and take the next steps in deciding your plans for the future!
