For students who have not decided on a program of study, our Exploratory Studies are designed to provide support, assistance, and the information necessary to make comfortable, informed decisions. Exploratory Studies allows students to explore academic programs, engage with faculty and staff, learn about the many services available to support their college experiences, become part of the CSU campus community, connect with other new and current students, learn traditions, and discover what it means to be a CSU Ram. The option to explore the entire University is offered through Exploratory Studies.
