Explorations is an experiential, comprehensive program for freshman and sophomores who are undecided about their major and wish to explore career options in the real world. Lyndon recognizes that not every student who attends college knows what they would like to do with their lives. In fact, 30 percent of freshman students nationwide describe themselves as undecided. This program ensures a seamless transition into your major of choice at Lyndon.
Explorations supports first-year students and sophomores who are actively investigating a variety of undergraduate majors and subsequent career options. Students take elective courses in fields of study they are interested plus required General Education courses in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Along the way, their assumptions about learning, life, and careers are challenged and sharpened.
By investigating the many options for majors, student “explorers” are guided through the great branches of knowledge, thus tapping into some expected and unexpected interests. Surrounded by like-minded students and faculty mentors, Explorations helps define and redefine interests, skills, and aspirations, and ultimately assists a student in choosing a major with confidence.
