FFYS 1000 First Year Seminar


3 OR 4 semester hours

The Core experience begins with a First Year Seminar (FYS) that introduces students to the spirit of academic excellence and intellectual rigor at LMU. Aimed at improving students' written and oral communication skills, the FYS invites students to engage critically and reflectively with scholarly discourse in a variety of formats: written, oral, and visual. The topic for each section of FYS is chosen and developed by its instructor within one of seven broad themes including 1) Faith and Reason, 2) Ethics and Justice, 3) Virtue and Justice, 4) Culture, Art, and Society, 5) Power and Privilege, 6) Globalization, and 7) Science, Nature, and Society.
