Fall 2014 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. These are the numbers you'll use to register for your courses. For example, the course Diversity in Society is offered at two different times this fall. You would use the call number 11859 to register for the class that meets on MWF at 9:30, and the call number 11858 to register for the class that meets at 10:30 on MWF.
