If you’re worried about going to college undecided about your future career, don’t be. The Academic Exploration Program (AEP) at Niagara University was developed three decades ago to support students who are still deciding on an academic major. The AEP advising staff is dedicated to helping these students align their interests and talents with potential fields of study and career paths that best suit their passions and goals.
The award-winning AEP uses a cutting-edge approach to aid undecided students in discovering and selecting the major that best supports their long-term goals. A personal advisor works with each student to discuss and research more than 80 majors and 50 minors at NU, so they can start on the journey toward a career they’ll love. Students develop a four-year plan with their advisor so they can sample classes and still know exactly how to stay on track to graduate on time.
