FYS 100W - First-Year Seminar


Writing Intensive
The first-year seminar is a low-enrollment, introductory-level topics course on a subject or question in the discipline that the professor presents to the class in order to model and instill intellectual passion. Students experience small-group interaction and refine the skills associated with discussion and deliberation of ideas and alternative viewpoints. The classroom format is Socratic: It includes ample time for discussion, sometimes in small groups, and students are required to represent their critical thinking verbally. Typically, an advanced undergraduate in the professor’s discipline acts as preceptor for the students and helps them learn study and writing skills. The course satisfies a writing-intensive requirement when listed as FYS 100W.
