Have you ever thought about what it takes to be prepared for the 21st century? Or how education, politics, art, and film shape and influence our experiences? You will engage with such questions in creative ways in the First Year Experience programs. Each FYE program is an integrated introduction to a liberal arts college education. Programs are designed around courses from one or two different disciplines focused on a common theme.
While you’re involved in these unique courses, you’ll also be developing skills essential for success in a liberal arts curriculum including writing, analytical reading, information literacy, and critical thinking. Each program consists of one or two content-area course(s) and one skills course. Some FYE programs also have a quantitative reasoning component.
