Who We Are

The Exploratory Studies Program enables students to enter NC State without immediately declaring a major, allowing a year for guided inquiry and exploration before a major is declared. The Exploratory Studies Village is a living and learning community that supports that mission.

What We Offer

The Village offers a close-knit, supportive environment, as well as opportunities for friendships, academic development and recreation within an intellectually challenging community. We are housed in Tucker and Owen residence halls, located on Central Campus.

Both Tucker and Owen are in convenient proximity to a variety of academic buildings, the NC State Bookstore, Talley Student Union,Fountain Dining Hall and Carmichael Gym.
