Lafayette’s First-Year Seminar (FYS) Program has been part of the College’s Common Course of Study since 1989. First-Year Seminars are inquiry based, reading-and writing-intensive courses for first-year, first-semester students. Taught by faculty across the College, FYSes introduce students to the habits of academic readers and writers by exploring “big” questions in the Liberal Arts and Sciences.
I currently serve as FYS Director. Faculty interested in teaching an FYS should contact me no later than Feb 1 of the year in which they want to offer their course.
