First Year Seminar courses are designed to help all first year students make the transition from High School to College. In these seminars, you will build relationships with faculty and classmates in a community of exploration and discussion, as we investigate the world of ideas together. You will be introduced to instructors who are passionate about their field of study, and equally committee to supporting student success. Whether you are certain of your major, or are exploring your options, you can look for topics here that will spark your interest in the world around you, and help you to feel part of a community of learners, scholars, and friends. 

For any questions about the First Year Seminar Program, please refer to the Student FAQ or the Faculty Resources and FAQ. If you don’t find the answer to your question, please contact Allison Gernant, First Year Seminar Coordinator.

For more information about the First Year Seminar, please contact Allison Gernant, First Year Seminar Coordinator or Nancy Small, USP Chair.
