During the first semester of their freshman year, all freshmen students participate in the Exploratory program, which is designed to give students a basic understanding of all of the programs offered at the Aggie. Exploratory classes are a small glimpse into the concentration areas within Animal Science, Environmental Science, and Plant Science. During the second semester students are freshmen choosing Plant Science as their desired field of study and take a more in depth look at the subject matter within the concentration areas.
