CORE 113 - First-year Seminar

(3 credits)
The First Year Seminar is a foundation course for the General Education Program at Saint Francis University. The purpose of the First Year Seminar at Saint Francis University is to provide students with the opportunity to explore an issue or topic in a format that places a premium on active rather than passive learning. Each section of CORE 113 is centered on a topic of special importance that students and professors explore in depth. Topics and instructors vary each semester, but every seminar is interdisciplinary in nature, addresses ethical and value issues, and emphasizes effective communication. The conversations that develop in CORE 113 help students develop the academic skills required for success in higher education. After Fall 2011, CORE 101 and CORE 102 will be phased out. Students needing these courses should enroll in CORE 113 instead.
