Arts and Sciences Exploratory Program – Pre-Professional Track


The College of Arts and Sciences Pre-Professional Exploratory program is designed for students who are deciding among one or more pre-health majors in the College. It allows students to explore major options as well as make progress toward graduation through the completion of general education courses. Exploratory students are required to meet with their advisor every semester.

All full-time, degree-seeking UT Knoxville students who first entered Fall 2013 or later must transition out of the exploratory track into a major no later than the end of their fourth tracking semester. Transfer students with less than 45 hours of transferrable work who are admitted as exploratory students must transition out of the exploratory track into a major no later than the end of their second full semester at UT.
