Undecided students who are also invited to join the Honors College are welcome to apply to Explorations for admission rather than to one of the baccalaureate degree colleges at the University of Maine.
An FYS Honors seminar is taught by an instructor who serves both as the Honors College and Explorations advisor. Explorations Honor students will be given the opportunity to assess their abilities, interests, and goals while investigating the University’s various degree programs and numerous resources. Under the guidance of their advisor, students will select courses in areas of interest while also fulfilling General Education and Honors requirements.
Explorations Honor students may choose to major in any of the undergraduate programs at the University.
