What is a seminar?

Your Ithaca College seminar is a 4-credit course designed to begin your liberal arts education within your theme. The course prefix for the Ithaca Seminar is ICSM. Three of the credits are the academic section of this course and the remaining credit is designed to help with your transition to college (offering an opportunity to learn about resources and skills that will help you succeed in college).

There are also other courses at Ithaca College that are labeled as seminar courses and they will have different course prefixes. Generally seminar courses are discussion based and there are usually a smaller number of students in the class. They are often 300 or 400 level courses.
