Exploratory Options

Florida State University allows students who are unsure about their major to enter the university as “exploratory.” This is a popular choice for a significant portion of entering freshmen. Advisers will work with you at Orientation to see if your academic needs are best met by remaining “exploratory” or by selecting a major. Exploratory students are encouraged to begin looking at options now by clicking on Exploring Majors Based on Interest Areas Exploring Majors Based on Interest Areas.

The Dean of Student Department supports an inclusive academic environment through education, empowerment, crisis management, and advocacy of students in collaboration with campus and community partners.

We welcome students and family members to connect with the Dean of Students Department if you are experiencing a crisis or just need someone to talk through a problem or experience you are having at Florida State University.
