FRSH 1200 First Year Seminar (3)

These interdisciplinary seminars for freshmen combine academic inquiry with supplemental programs that foster students' educational and person development during the first year of college. Topics vary and include interdisciplinary offerings in the humanities, arts, and sciences. Classes are small and require substantial student participation. Emphasis is on developing and improving fundamental academic skills, including critical thinking and communications (the ability to write, read, listen, and speak effectively).
