What does it mean to be Exploratory at Georgia Southern?

As an Exploratory student you may be getting a lot of questions from people about what you want your major to be and you might be feeling a little overwhelmed thinking about how you will make this decision. Georgia Southern is a great place to explore all of your options and we are here to help you along in the decision-making process! At Georgia Southern, we organize majors into Focus Areas, which are clusters of majors that share a lot of characteristics and overlap in coursework. You can choose to be Exploratory in one of our nine Focus Areas.

Declaring an Exploratory Focus Area can help you by:

  • narrowing down your interest and choices
  • providing opportunities to take classes that lead you into a range of related majors
  • helping to keep you on the path for graduating on time
