Exploring Program

Discover Your Calling in Community

Not yet ready to choose from the 60+ majors that APU offers? If you are enrolling as an undeclared major, we have a place for you.

The Exploring Program is designed for students who are still discovering their vocation, “the work a person is called to in this world, the thing that a person is summoned to spend his or her life doing,” as Frederick Buechner says. If you haven’t yet decided what you want to study, you’re not alone. Many students begin their college experience by exploring majors. We’ll help you figure it out, every step of the way.
