You’re sharing a campus. Now share your thoughts.
Each fall, first-year students like you may choose from dozens of seminars that combine the study of a particular topic with issues surrounding the transition to college. Recent seminars include American Politics in the Age of Obama, Moral Psychology and the Seven Deadly Sins, and What Was in Aristotle's Medicine Cabinet? The Origins of Modern Medicine.
These small, supportive group experiences, limited to 20–25 participants, are designed to build your communication, analytical, and critical-thinking abilities—skills that will serve you well no matter which field you choose.
As an exploratory student, you can preregister for an Ithaca Seminar prior to attending summer orientation. Your seminar instructor serves as your academic adviser until you declare a major.
