First-Year Seminars (FSEM)

One of your four fall courses will be a first-year seminar (FSEM). Many FSEMs count toward the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum or may be equivalent to departmental or divisional offerings. For example, FSEM 111 fulfills the Communities and Identities CORE requirement, whereas FSEM 161 is equivalent to ENGL 200 and fulfills one-half of the Human Thought and Expression areas of inquiry. Each FSEM course description (available below) indicates any requirement it may fulfill and/or if it's an equivalent of a regularly offered course within the curriculum. 

Every effort will be made to register you for one of your highest preferred FSEM choices; however, due to small class size it is impossible to accommodate everyone. If we are unable to accommodate your highest FSEM preferences, you will be placed in an available FSEM that fits your schedule.
