Many students enter MU without declaring a specific major; others have declared a major but are not sure about their choice. Exploring your options early while working with advisors and staff provides you with the opportunities and resources to explore the many fields MU has to offer and the ever-growing assortment of careers the world of work has to offer.

MU offers several undeclared majors that allow students to explore majors within one school or college. In some colleges, all students enter in the undeclared program to explore all options within the college and complete lower level degree requirements.

Students who are Undecided/Exploratory are exploring options in more than one major or college. Students who select Undecided/Exploratory at admission are officially part of the Undeclared major in the College of Arts and Science (A&S), and supported by advisors in Academic Exploration & Advising Services (AEAS, and staff in the MU Career Center (, both located in the Student Success Center.
