Academic Initiatives

Discover Sciences

As a member of the Discover Sciences program, you will be able to explore the physical and life science majors offered through the College of Arts and Sciences.

You will be involved in an aspect of the First-Year Experience program designed specifically for students who are exploring their academic options. A weekly seminar, Introduction to the University, is designed to help you learn more about the University and yourself. Topics such as study skills, goal setting and academic choices are discussed. While this one-hour seminar is required of all students, sections are designed specifically for Discover Sciences students. These sections are limited to 25 students, and the professor serves as both your instructor and academic adviser. You will also have the opportunity to work with peer student mentors through this seminar.

Be assured that your professor/adviser will understand your desire to explore various academic programs and how those programs can match your interests and aptitude.
