*Students admitted to the secondary education cohort during their general education program will enroll in the one (1) hour Explorations class. Transfer students and Piedmont students who declare a secondary education major at the start of their junior year will be required to enroll in Explorations for three (3) hours credit in order to introduce previously developed strands explored during the earlier general education sequence. Students who opt for secondary education after the fall of their junior year will be advised to pursue the Dual-Degree Program. (Refer to the current catalog for details.)
