Lafayette’s First-Year Seminar (FYS) program gives new college students the opportunity to think critically, write clearly, and contribute to thoughtful discussions, all of which are key academic skills students need to thrive. While the FYS topics vary greatly, each topic is explored from an interdisciplinary perspective. Within a small class, students are able to work cooperatively with each other and interact with their professor. They are trained to conduct sound research, think through complex issues, and express themselves effectively through writing. The result is an engaged learning community. Here are details on a few course offerings.
