The Exploratory Program provides students a unique opportunity to discover the variety of educational options available to them at Indiana Tech.
Participating in the Exploratory Program provides a stepping stone for students who are committed to earning a college degree but unsure of which degree is right for them. A core set of professors and advisors are dedicated to assisting students with career exploration, personal self-assessments, interest and personality inventories, and goal setting exercises.
Upon completion of the two-semester program, students will be confident in their decision to major in one of our career-focused associate or bachelor degree programs.
Computer Science Exploratory Program
This path is designed for students who are interested in the field of computer science but are unsure of which degree would best fit their strengths, interests, and career goals. Students are able to take introductory courses within our School of Computer Science, allowing for a concentrated look at the field.
General Exploratory Program
The approach of the General Exploratory Program is to provide students with a broad introduction to a variety of degree programs at Indiana Tech. Students are able to take introductory courses in one or two areas of interest, meet with faculty members from various fields, and complete informational interviews with alumni and employers.
Education Licensure Exploratory Track
The School of Education’s exploratory track is a two year program designed for students who are unsure if teaching is the right field for them or who may not meet certain academic prerequisites for entering into one of the licensure programs. Through this program, students will have the opportunity to participate in a series of courses that will both introduce them to the field of teaching and help prepare them to meet the academic requirements for admission to the licensure programs. Each semester, students will meet with their adviser to discuss the academic progress, interests, and the expectations of the Teacher Education program.
