First-Year Seminar Courses

First-Year Seminar Offerings, Fall 2014

All first-year seminars meet Tuesday and Thursday, 11:00-12:15.

Please note that ten (10) of the 18 FYSs are part of Pitzer’s Global-Local Mentoring Program (GLMP). These FYSs are marked by an asterisk (*) and include additional required programming outside of scheduled class time (TBA). Because professors teaching a GLMP FYS serve as their students’ faculty adviser for the first three semesters, students in the program develop strong mentoring relationships with faculty and gain a broad understanding of how the curriculum intersects with their individual educational goals. (Normally, incoming students are assigned faculty advisers in a field related to the major interest that they indicated on the college application.) In addition, global-local mentorship goes beyond the first semester by providing diverse venues for students to participate early on in community engagement and study abroad, two of the hallmarks of a Pitzer education.
