First-Year Seminar (FYS)

Each of the courses in the First-Year Seminar (FYS) program is unique in its own way, but what is shared is the:
  • small cohort experience. You, along with your faculty member and class participants, study a topic in a dynamic, small-group environment.
  • focus on learning by sharing knowledge and experience through writing, discussions, and presentations…key skills your faculty and employers require.
  • connection with faculty that can only happen in smaller classroom settings. They will get to know you well and can recommend you for all kinds of opportunities.
