FYS 100W - First Year Seminar Writing Honors (4 Cr.)

This course is a an honors level writing intensive First Year Seminar, fulfilling both your First Year Seminar and Writing Studies requirements. This seminar asks for frequent writing and revision, thoughtful peer review, and a high level of motivation and engagement. First year seminars are based on faculty-chosen topics, designed to show students what faculty are thinking about but, more importantly, how faculty are thinking about a specific topic. They also point the way forward toward further exploration. As with a senior seminar, each class is small and is composed of students with similar interests. First year seminars emphasize student responsibility and participation and hone the skills involved in investigating a subject slowly, closely, and in depth. The first-year seminar launches students into the pleasures and demands of higher education. Course topics vary. Placement by writing sample (evaluated as part of WRT 181 placement).
