The First Year Seminar is the first course students take as part of the Global Citizenship Program. On occasion, they may take place in an informal setting like this one.

Webster faculty are invited to consider teaching a First Year Seminar (formerly known as Freshman Seminar) in Fall 2014.

The First Year Seminars provide students an opportunity to discover the excitement of learning on a personal level and help develop their potential for academic exploration and research. It is the first course that students take as part of the Global Citizenship Program.

The seminars teach students to think critically within a community of learners mentored by an engaged faculty member. The seminars set a standard for academic excellence that continues throughout the academic career of every student.

If you have taught a seminar in the past, please consider teaching another one. It would be helpful to review the guidelines because they have changed and evolved over the past few years.

If you are interested please review the First Year Seminar Guidlines [PDF].

Note: The due date for proposal forms has been extended from Dec. 6 to Dec. 13, 2013. If you have any questions, contact Robin Assner at
