A First Year Seminar (FYS) is a writing-intensive, topical course that introduces students to academic thought and discourse. As a central part of the new Core Curriculum, all students must complete a three-credit FYS within their first year (24 credits), ideally during their first semester on campus.
Please note: Students may only take one First Year Seminar course for credit.
FYS courses address learning outcomes designed to prepare and orient students toward productive and fulfilling college careers. These outcomes include the development of written fluency, the ability to read texts purposefully, and the capacity to gather topic-appropriate research materials.
For more perspective, please read a message from the FYS Coordinator.
