First-Year Seminar (FSEM)
FSEM 1111 First Year Seminar (4 Credits)
First Year Seminar topics reflect the intellectual passions of the faculty who lead them. Seminars introduce students to the rigorous academic expectations of university-level work; as small, highly interactive courses, they help students improve skills in one or more of the following areas: writing, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, presentation and argument, and/or information literacy. The instructor of the seminar serves as the student's mentor for the student's entire first year. This course is required for all first-year students.
