First Year Seminar Program

The Department offers incoming, first-year students the opportunity to take some of our introductory core courses in a small-group setting with particular emphasis on the development of writing skills. The instructor of the course also serves as the student's advisor. This program is part of the College-wide Teacher-Advisor Program (TAP). Precise arrangements vary from year to year.

Integrated Social Science Program

The Department participates in the College's Integrated Social Science Program (ISSP). The program is designed to present 30 first-year students with the opportunity to understand major social problems and efforts to solve them. Students work closely with faculty members from a variety of social science disciplines.
