Year two places an emphasis on inquiry and exploration. By the end of their sophomore year, students will be asked to make a decision about a major course (or courses) of study. This involves finding a major that would not only help the student meet life and career goals, but that the student also finds appealing and fulfilling. As more and more of the prerequisite GERs are fulfilled, more responsibility is taken on by the student in terms of making decisions about personal and academic choices, including investigating study away, internship, and re​search opportunities.
