First-Year Seminar

As part of your fall semester course load, you’ll take a three-credit First-Year Seminar, a class you’ll select solely based on your personal passions. While you examine a topic like religion and the Marvel universe, young adult literature and social change, or the culture of competitive sports, you’ll do so in the company of like-minded peers who share your interests. Find your tribe and have fun gaining skills that will aid you in your other classes, including:

  • Critically reading and analyzing text
  • Creating connections between course topics
  • Asking meaningful questions
  • Engaging in academic discourse
