Freshman seminars are an excellent introduction to academic life in the College, and are highly recommended for first or second-semester students. The primary goal of the freshman seminar program is to provide every freshman with the opportunity for a direct personal encounter with a faculty member in a small class setting devoted to a significant intellectual endeavor. Seminars are open to students in all four undergraduate schools.
While the seminars are not required, students in the College find them very helpful in enabling them as first-year students to envision a level of engagement with a major that they might not otherwise be able to appreciate until they enroll in more advanced courses in their junior or senior years.
