First-Year Seminars

First-Year Seminars (FYS) are unique inter- or multidisciplinary courses that let faculty and first-year students engage in extensive inquiry about an issue, topic or problem of interest. From examining Indian cinema, to writing essays about the landscape, to exploring the Bible, these seminars cover a wide range of inventive topics. Although not required, these small classes give first-year students a valuable opportunity to experience the benefits of college-level learning through seminar-style investigation.
