First Year Seminar

Exploration is the heart of the academic experience for all students at Goucher. Students take at least four exploration courses during their first three years as Goucher students, beginning with the first year seminar in their first semester. 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. These courses have the course code of FYS 100 (and a special section of FYS 100W which combines the elements of FYS 100 and WRT 181). Goucher Prison Education Partnership students are exempt from this requirement.
