OUE 2100: Academic Planning and Exploration (1 credit)

The Center for Academic Planning and Exploration offers a 1 credit course to guide you through the academic and career exploration process. This course is offered through the Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE).


OUE 2100 is a blended (primarily online, 2 in-person class sessions), 1-credit course for degree-seeking undergraduate students who are strongly undecided about their academic major or those who need to consider a parallel plan for their major.

Through a combination of online course modules and in-person meetings, students will develop an Exploratory Action Plan to help them discover and declare a best-fit major that matches their interests, values and academic skills.

Course Format

  • The course is designed to allow you some freedom in customizing their exploration process. Some of the class assignments are required while others are selected by you.
  • This course is facilitated mostly online and includes two required in-person class meetings as well as experiential exercises that require interaction with campus resources, staff and the community.
  • You must be a full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate student at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Priority is given to undecided students who have completed at least 15 credits on the Twin Cities campus. We also welcome undecided transfer students in this course.
  • If you would like to talk to someone about this course, please utilize the CAPE Drop-In Hours or email
