(2) First-Year Seminar, the fifteen week course
About UNIV 100
Students choose a First-Year Seminar topic or theme that interests them and enroll in that UNIV 100 section. The course is problem-based or project-based, and engages students in meaningful inquiry and activities that develop core cognitive skills such as critical thinking, information literacy, and oral and written communication skills. Many UNIV 100 courses will culminate in a student-produced project – the best projects are then shown off in the UNIV 100 Showcase.
There is a $95 course fee associated with this class.
UNIV 100 courses for the Fall 2022 semester are organized into themes and then by topic. We recommend that you browse this catalog, clicking on the course topic for a description of the section. Note those section/CRN numbers that interest you and fit your schedule.
