Do your talents and interests range from accounting to theatre? Consider the exploratory program, proven to help students find their passions. This program does not delay graduation and may actually save you time and money because you took the time to discover a major that fits you.
The exploratory humanities, fine arts and design track offers students an opportunity to explore a variety of majors related to the humanities, fine arts and design professions.
ASU recognizes that many students are not ready to choose a specific academic program of study when first entering the university. Allowing students the option to declare exploratory status permits them to begin meeting General Studies requirements that all ASU graduates must fulfill while affording them some time to explore a variety of academic courses that may lead to a potential major interest.
All College of Integrative Sciences and Arts exploratory students are required to enroll in the following major and career exploration courses, which must be taken sequentially:
UNI 150 Major and Career Exploration (1)
UNI 250 Choosing a Major (1)
UNI 270 Career Direction for Success (1)
For a complete list of all majors associated with this exploratory track, students should reference https://cisa.asu.edu/exp-art-design-humanities-majors.
A major map outlines a major's critical requirements, courses, and optimal course sequence and aids students in remaining on track to graduation.

All students are required to meet general university admission requirements:
Find and apply for relevant scholarships.
ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.
Career opportunities are specific to the ultimate major of choice.
