Second Year Seminars (SYS) are speaking-intensive (298) or writing intensive
(299) topic courses that build on the academic skills and habits introduced in
the First Year Seminar. SYS courses engage students in a specific academic area
of interest and provide them with the opportunity to reinforce, share and
interpret knowledge. Students will improve their speaking, reading, research,
and information and technology skills while building the connections between
scholarship and action that are required for lifelong learning. These courses
will fulfill the Second Year Seminar requirement and may fulfill other
requirements for the Core Curriculum. Each course may fulfill different
requirements and topics may change each semester. Only one SYS course may be
taken for credit.
Prerequisites for 298 courses: First Year Seminar or more than 24 earned credits, ENGL 101 and either COMM 130 or THEA 210. These courses are speaking intensive.
Prerequisites for 299 courses: First Year Seminar or more than 24 earned credits, ENGL 101 and ENGL 102. These courses are writing intensive.
Students with 54 or more transfer credits will have this requirement waived.
