HNRS 101 - HONORS FIRST YEAR SEMINAR
Designed for first-time, first semester College Honors Students, the First-Course Seminar (FCS) provides a comprehensive introduction to Honors-level learning. Seminar courses are developed around an academic theme or topic, such as philosophy, science or social science, based on the expertise of each course instructor, providing students with the opportunity to select a College Honors First Course Seminar that best suits their interests. FCS instructors function as advisors throughout a student's first year in the College Honors Program. Together with a peer facilitator the FCS instructors introduce students to the academic and co-curricular programming of the College Honors Program and to all-college life generally. FCS classes are seminars that emphasize critical reading, writing, discussion--especially student-led projects and discussions, with library research that includes review of primary and secondary sources that are scholarly peer-reviewed within the chosen field of study. The course focuses on intellectual engagement, experiential learning, methodology of the discipline being studied, and social responsibility to the larger community. FCS students will also participate in the Ramapo Summer Reading Program in which all first year students read, discuss and critically assess the same book in their seminars. The various sections of the College Honors Program will engage in joint projects from time to time. The College Honors Program encourages students from all disciplines to explore a learning community outside of the student's usually academic interest.
