Fall Academic Term 2003 Course Guide

First-Year Seminars for Fall Academic Term 2003

All first-year seminars remain closed until first-year students begin to enroll

The First-Year Seminar Program offers entering LS&A students a small group learning experience. Students participate in groups of approximately 18-20 and explore subjects of particular interest in collaboration with a faculty member who has chosen to work with first-year students in a seminar setting. It is hoped that students who take a seminar will find in it a sense of intellectual and social community that will make the transition from high school to a large university easier.

First-Year Seminars are taught through the University Courses division of the College (UC) or individual departments and programs. Course descriptions can be found later in this Course Guide. First-Year Seminars are 3- or 4-credit courses which may be used toward fulfillment of the Area Distribution requirement in Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Mathematical and Symbolic Analysis; the Quantitative Reasoning requirement; or the Introductory Composition requirement.

The following First-Year Seminars will be offered by departments and programs in the Fall Academic Term 2003. Course descriptions appear in the departmental listings of this Course Guide.

Only first-year students (including first-year students with sophomore standing) may pre-register for First-Year Seminars. All other students need permission of instructor.

This list is subject to change.
