FYE 1050 - First Year Experience - Exploration

Credits: 1
College is a time for self-exploration, active engagement and understanding of the world.  The purpose of this course is to facilitate a positive transitional experience and establish a culture of self-advocacy.  Through active engagement and reflective decision making students will develop a foundation for academic, professional, social and personal success.  In addition to the traditional FYE curriculum, this course will introduce a variety of academic topics and their integral role in our current society.  This course will allow first-year students to dive deeply into an active and hands-on learning experience early in their academic career to get them excited about college-level learning.  The approach will also serve as an engaging preview for the types of immersive, learning-by doing opportunities that typically don’t come about until students reach their junior or senior years.  Thus, giving every student an experiential learning experience in their first semester.
