The Academic Exploration Program is one of the most comprehensive programs of its kind in the country. Concerned and available faculty, strong supportive services, and seminars in major selection and academic success make the decision-making process relevant.

The Academic Exploration Program is a program designed to help you identify your interests and develop your future plans. This is possible in an environment that allows you to explore different courses in areas of interest to you. Through its flexible curriculum, a student may enroll in classes in any of the colleges on campus. The faculty member associated with AEP 100 seminar serves as your academic advisor. This student-to-advisor relationship makes the Academic Exploration Program a personalized program.

Students enrolled in the Academic Exploration Program must meet with their academic advisor each semester or they will not be eligible to register for classes. Students need to declare a major by the time they have completed their sophomore year.

The Academic Exploration Program was recognized in 2012 by the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) as an Outstanding Advising Program.

Enables students to identify majors and careers consistent with abilities, interests, and personality.

This is the official catalog for the 2016-2017 academic year. This catalog serves as a contract between a student and Bradley University.

It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of the current program and graduation requirements for particular degree programs.
