  FYS 100 - First-Year Seminar

First-Year Seminars (FYS) are limited enrollment courses designed to orient students to UMF and to facilitate students' intellectual transition to college. The focus will be on developing students' skills at reading, writing, discussion, and research as they engage in collaborative inquiry into open-ended questions relevant to the world beyond the classroom. Topics - which will change every semester - will often range outside the divisional curriculum and will thus allow faculty to pursue topics of a non-disciplinary or interdisciplinary nature. Prerequisite(s): First-Year student. Every semester.
