explore southern

At Southern, we view ALL students as "EXPLORATORY"...
whether you're confidently declared, totally undecided, or somewhere in-between! 

Explore Southern is a university-wide collaboration with the shared goal of helping every Southern student make a well-informed and intentional choice in a major that aligns with their values, interests, and skills.

Choosing the right major can seem like an overwhelming process, but it doesn't have to be. Following these steps will ensure that your major decision process is meaningful and successful!

There's a lot of misinformation out there! That's why it's important to get educated before you begin your exploration journey. Take the time to learn the facts about majors and careers!

It's often easier to identify subjects you DON'T want to study. This activity gives you the opportunity to remove majors in which you have no interest, allowing you to focus only the ones that matter!

Exploring majors? It's often best to connect with folks who know what they're talking about! Luckily, we've got an amazing team of staff, faculty and current students to help you along your journey! 

Exploration Ambassadors are current SCSU students who are available to answer from students exploring majors and offer insight about what it's like to be a student in their majors.
