First Year Seminar
College is different from high school. First-year seminars
at Wellesley help bridge the transition.
Join other first-years in courses designed to "show you the ropes" of real academic inquiry. A seminar offers active learning in a more intimate environment. In Wellesley's first-year seminars, you can tackle more advanced topics than in a typical first-year course, and develop the critical and creative thinking skills essential to flourishing in college.
