Fall 2017 Call for New Seminar Proposals


Proposals for new sections of BGSU 1910 are due no later than December 15.

The BGSU 1910: First Year Seminar is a one-hour, small, seminar style class that first year, first time students will take in the fall semester. The course provides students opportunities to work closely with a professor and fellow students on a topic of the faculty member’s choice. It enables students to engage intellectually in a challenging experience from the start of their college career and to appreciate the relevance of the course topic outside the classroom and to the community.


Learning Outcomes for the BGSU 1910 - First Year Seminar are as follows:

  1. CONNECT students with instructor and classmates
  2. ENGAGE students in the intellectual life of the university and the seminar topic
  3. EXPLORE appropriate co-curricular opportunities and engagement on campus 

Best practices include experiential activities and projects, including those that introduce students to community engagement learning outcomes.

Typically, faculty who are interested will be teaching the seminar in addition to their standard workload and will receive compensation for one credit hour at the standard overload rate.
