First Year Foundations

The First Year Foundations seminars enable new students to engage in academically rigorous discussions and develop strong written, oral and teamwork skills in the process. Small classes capped at 30 students help ensure that all students are active participants in discussions and have the opportunity to build relationships with professors early on in their academic career.

These half-credit courses focus on issues, questions and controversies surrounding a particular topic or theme. Taught by some of the Faculty’s leading scholars, the best researchers and teachers at U of T, they are restricted to students newly admitted to university, so don’t miss out.
