FYS129

First-Year Studies is now accepting proposals for 129 Freshman Seminars to be offered during the spring semester. These one-credit seminars are small, discussion-based courses that allow the professor to design a class around a topic of personal interest. Faculty instructors must be tenured or tenure-track. Faculty will receive research stipends for their participation in the program.
