TAKE THE TIME TO EXPLORE

We believe every student should be exploratory! Whether you’re anxiously undecided, comfortably declared, or somewhere in between...it’s best to take the time to examine your options before fully committing to a major. 

TME is a University-wide program dedicated exclusively to major exploration.
