Frontiers First Year Colloquium


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Programs

The Frontiers First Year Colloquium introduces students to the pleasures and demands of the liberal arts and sciences and initiates them into the rich academic life of the Goucher College community. Each Frontiers seminar examines a particular topic in depth and from multiple points of view. Students develop critical reading, writing and thinking skills and explore different perspectives through which to examine assumptions. Class discussions are enriched by community and creative projects, guest speakers, field trips, and hands-on investigations. Taught by expert faculty from across the disciplines and organized around the common theme of Frontiers, Goucher’s first year seminars foster independent thought, student responsibility, intellectual curiosity, collaborative inquiry, and the joy of active learning. Goucher II students who enter as first-year students are required to enroll in Frontiers. ISP 110 and ISP 110Y  taken in the fall semester fulfill the Frontiers requirement. All incoming first-year students are required to pass Frontiers, ISP 110 or ISP 110Y  to be eligible for graduation. Individual course listings are available through the First Year Portal and on the Goucher College website.
