First-Year Experience Requirement

First-Year Seminar Requirement

Students who enter Worcester State University as first-time first-year students must enroll in a first-year seminar—a course outside the student's major, which focuses on a special topic or problem, and which is designated by FS and followed by the department and course number designations. Students may choose from a variety of first-year seminars that are offered each year. First-year seminars differ from other courses in that they have a limited enrollment, are designed for first-year students, and emphasize the academic tools necessary to ensure a successful Worcester State University experience. First-year seminars are designed to meet one of the General Education distribution requirements.
