Exploratory-Science affords students who have a genuine interest in the natural sciences, but who are somewhat uncertain as to which discipline to pursue, an opportunity to explore a variety of options during their first year at Villanova University. During their freshman year, students enroll in one or two natural science courses with laboratory and mathematics. The Exploratory-Science option provides students with the opportunity to make a considered and data- based decision as to which discipline they wish to pursue for their four years.
