Course Descriptions

Fall 2024

During your first semester, you will live alongside classmates in your First-Year Program, making it much easier to collaborate and learn together as you embark on your FYP, an interdisciplinary, often team-taught, course that focuses on a topic of broad interest and is one of the four courses that first-year students take in the fall.

Spring 2024

Your second semester at St. Lawrence will include a First-Year Seminar, which is often a smaller class size and brings you together with a different group of students, likely many from outside your FYP.  First-Year Seminars (FYS) strive to continue the communication skills, critical thinking, ethical reflection, and liberal learning goals of the FYP courses but with a specific focus on critical inquiry and research. Each of you will engage in an in-depth research project over the course of the semester.
