First Year Seminars

Registration for First-Year Seminars is limited to newly admitted students in U0 or U1. These courses are designed to provide closer interaction with professors and peers than is available in large introductory courses. These seminars focus on the latest scholarly developments in the field and expose students to advanced research methods. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The maximum number of students in any seminar is 25, although some have lower enrollment caps.

Arts students may take only one First-Year Seminar from either the Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Science listings. Students who register for more than one will be obliged to withdraw from all but one.
