First Year Seminars (FYS) are writing intensive, topic courses that introduce students to academic thought, discourse and practices. FYS courses prepare and orient students toward productive and fulfilling college careers by actively engaging them in a specific academic area of interest. Students will improve their writing, reading, research, and basic information and technology skills while learning to work both collaboratively and independently. These courses will fulfill the First Year Seminar requirement and may fulfill other requirements for the Core Curriculum. Each course may fulfill different requirements and topics may change each semester. Only one FYS course may be taken for credit.
Prerequisites for 199 courses: Open to all freshmen with a writing placement score of 3 or above or a SAT score of 500 or above
Students with 24 or more transfer credits will have this requirement waived.
