Fall 2015 First-Year Seminar Course Offerings

How to read the course schedule:

Days/Times refer to the days and times when the class meets, e.g., MWF = course meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday or TR = course meets every Tuesday and Thursday and T means the course meets just once a week, on Tuesdays. Notice that the amount of time you spend in class per week is the same but the amount of time you spend in class each day depends on how often the class meets.

Call Number refers to the LORA call number, a unique number assigned to each course section. That's the number you'll use to register for that particular course at that particular day/time.
