A sound liberal arts education should enable students to participate as quickly as possible in thought-provoking academic discussion. First-year Seminars are intended to facilitate this process by providing students a setting for intellectual and creative engagement. These seminars introduce and support our institutional value of academic achievement through close student-faculty relationships. Seminars are designed to foster a lively and respectful interaction, both among students and between students and faculty, around a topic of the faculty member′s choosing.
Open to first-year students only. Enrollment limited to 16 students per seminar. These seminars are designated Writing courses.
