Exploratory Track Advising

UMass students

Exploratory Track Public Health and Health Sciences students can expect to learn about the fields of Communication Disorders, Nutrition, Kinesiology, and Public Health all the while being supported with specialized advising as they explore majors and coursework beyond the School of Public Health and Health Sciences (SPHHS).

Exploratory Track (ET) advising will assist students with their consideration and ultimate declaration of a major based on their interests, eligibility, and academic proficiency. Exploratory Track students must declare a primary major (one that leads to degree completion) no later than the registration period during their third full-time term (typically fall of sophomore year), after two graded full-time fall or spring semesters, at UMass Amherst. Your Academic Dean may approve an exception for extenuating circumstances, to allow additional time to declare the major.
