First-Year Seminar Form #1

This form initiates the process of submitting seminars for approval by the Institute for Writing and Rhetoric and the Committee on Instruction.


This form is due by the Spring 2017 deadline indicated in our email to you,  for courses taught in 2017-2018.

You will receive a submission confirmation email after you submit the form. This acknowledges receipt of the form and gives you a copy of what you submitted.

After the form has been reviewed, you will be contacted by the Institute for Writing and Rhetoric about the next steps, including deadlines to submit additional information and a syllabus. This may take a week or two.

Please compose any critical text in another document (such as Word) and copy/paste into the fields below.

Please consider a MWF morning timeslot since we generally have too few requests for those, and too many requests for the Tu Th 10A and 2A timeslots.
for timetable and transcript (maximum 27 characters including spaces)

The following questions are for faculty repeating a previously-offered seminar only:


Course Description to Appear in Online Timetable

(This box only applies to professors repeating a FYS.)

This description is what students will see on the web in timetable when they select seminars. Please include a very brief description of the types of writing assignments in the course to help students get a sense of the course work. Please make clear to students the ways in which your First-year Seminar is a writing course as well as a course in the announced topic.
Do you want to make changes to your previously-offered seminar (new distributive or world culture categories, new title, or very different description)?
