Freshman seminars are one-unit, pass/no-credit courses that invite you to learn about a subject you’re interested in—just because you’re in college now, and you can!
Signing up for FYS129: Freshman Seminar will put you in a classroom with a professor whose interests match yours. Seminars have an enrollment maximum of eighteen students, so you’ll get lots of interaction with your instructor and other students.
It doesn’t matter if you know a lot—or just a little—about your seminar topic: You’re there to learn, explore, and exchange ideas. Taking FYS 129 is an excellent opportunity to get to know other first-year students with similar interests and to develop a relationship with a UT professor that can be sustained throughout your UT career.
