First Year Seminar Program

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

The First Year Seminar Program receives generous support from The First Year Seminar on Diversity Scholarship Fund.

Coordinator: Dr. William Marquess

All first-year students at Saint Michael’s College enroll in a First-Year Seminar. These one-semester, writing-intensive courses are restricted in enrollment so as to focus on the development of college-level thinking, reading, discussion, and writing skills. Seminars explore broad questions in the liberal arts and are designed to foster intellectual curiosity, personal engagement, and active learning. While the topics vary among individual seminars, all courses in the program introduce students to the close reading of primary texts, to interdisciplinary study, and to reflection on cultural diversity.
