Develop a program that’s tailored to you. Work with an advisor through the exploratory studies program to create a degree path unique to your needs and interests.

What You’ll Learn

The university studies program is unique because you’ll learn what matters most to you. If one of Mary’s existing undergraduate programs isn’t exactly what you need, or if your professional or personal interests don’t require a specific major, university studies is a good choice for you.

Connect Your Degree Plan with Your Career Goals

Once you’ve met general education requirements, you’ll be able to develop a program of study that develops the skills you need in your chosen field.

Work Closely with Your Student Success Advisor

You’ll develop your degree program with the support and guidance of your student success advisor.

Enjoy Individualized Attention

You’ll receive the same personalized attention and experience the same small class sizes that students in all Mary degree programs enjoy.

Gain Real-world Experience in Your Field

Take advantage of Mary’s internship and job placement services to advance your career.

Take Ownership of Your Educational and Professional Career

As a university studies major, you’ll show current and future employers that you are actively engaged in your career and willing to invest in your success.

I was able to study in multiple areas, which allowed me to gain knowledge in various fields that I was interest in. Because of this, I feel that I have learned how to work well with people in different situations and understand them, while also being able to bring my knowledge of the faith into conversation.
