Students will critically examine and evaluate evidence, claims, beliefs, or points of view about meaningful, relevant issues. Students will be introduced to active learning, inquiry of pressing issues, and individual and collaborative processing of ideas through the First-Year Seminar curriculum. These skills will be reinforced throughout the baccalaureate experience.
FYS courses must meet all six Critical and Creative Thinking student learning outcomes:
The Registrar's Office and Office of Academic Affairs created a common course numbering for all FYS courses at UW. Departments should use their department prefix plus 1101. Courses not tied to a department should use the UWYO prefix.
Department FYS courses - Department Prefix 1101
Courses outside of UW departments or programs - UWYO 1101
A CARF form is not required for FYS courses. The USP Committee will send all approvals directly to the Registrar's Office.
