Fall 2019 Call for New Seminar Proposals


The BGSU 1910: First Year Seminar is a one-hour, small, seminar style class that first year, first time students complete in the fall semester. BGSU 1910 seminars provide students with the opportunity to work closely with a professor and classmates on a topic of the faculty member’s choice. The format 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. Goals include engaging students in the intellectual life of the university and the relevance of the seminar topic, connecting them with a faculty member and peers in the class, and involving them in appropriate co-curricular opportunities on-campus and in the community. Best practices will include experiential activities and projects, including those that introduce students to community engagement learning outcomes.
