What is a Major Exploration Group?
With over 100 majors offered here at UConn, it's easy to feel overwhelmed when you're exploring. We suggest you start by choosing a Major Exploration Group. Major Exploration Groups are clusters of majors with related content and disciplinary focus. Having a Major Exploration Group (instead of being undecided) will give you a direction and will greatly simplify the exploration process.
Cultures and Humanities Exploration Group
If you are interested in art, music, history, literature, and/or languages, you might consider turning your passion for the humanities into a major.
Regardless of the major you choose, you'll learn to examine the common issues, ideas, and themes that run throughout different cultures and throughout human history. You’ll develop the ability to think critically, communicate effectively, and make connections across broad fields of knowledge. You'll take a multidisciplinary approach to your education, which is a great choice if you don't like limiting yourself to one area.
