UNIV 103: First Year Inquiry Seminar


UNIV 103 offers courses, called seminars, that match student and faculty interests.  This promotes engagement inside and outside of the classroom in students and faculty alike.  Classes are designed to help students veer away from “the one right answer” typically required on high school tests to exploring a variety of ideas and diverse knowledge that opens the mind to “multiple solutions to complex problems.”  In this way, critical thinking begins to develop.  Additionally, a foundation is built for each student to succeed on campus and beyond.  Class content is learned through direct experience, group work, team teaching, and other means that discourages lecture and encourages a strategy akin to a classroom without walls.
