The Exploratory Track program will assist students with their consideration and ultimate declaration of a major based on their interest, eligibility, and academic proficiency.
The University of Massachusetts Amherst recognizes many of our incoming students would benefit from learning more about the many majors offered on campus that may be a good fit for their academic interests and aspirations. Starting Fall 2015, the University is implementing an Exploratory Track Program for all students who have been accepted for admission to the University as an Undeclared major. The Exploratory Track program will assist students with their consideration and ultimate declaration of a major based on their interest, eligibility, and academic proficiency.
As an Undeclared major, Exploratory Track students will benefit from working closely with their academic advisors to explore potential majors within the collegiate unit and across campus. Exploratory Track students will also participate in academic programming, including a first year seminar, embedded within their affiliated school or college.
Exploratory Tracks for Undeclared Students: Business Exploratory Track (Invitation only) A select number of students who applied to the Isenberg School of Management but did not receive direct acceptance will be admitted to the Business Exploratory Track. These students will explore their interests in business including the majors offered by the Isenberg School of Management. Students in this exploratory track will be advised on appropriate coursework and also receive advising assistance on other majors across campus that have a business flavor and may be appealing to students given their interests and academic proficiency.
