A Few Ideas:

Consider enrolling in a First-Year Seminar UNIV*1200 (if it fits in your schedule)

First-Year Seminars are engaging, stimulating courses open to first-year students ONLY, and limited to 18 students! They are electives and can be used as an Arts or Science credit. Led by University professors, staff and some community members, topics range from human sexuality to climate change, from science to communication, from human rights to animal rights. Each seminar is developed to be interdisciplinary and is meant to be unique and not something you would be taking as part of your regular program.

There are a limited number of these courses offered each semester, with just 18 spots available in each one, so enrol early! Please note that First-Year Seminars are not required courses and they may not fit in your schedule depending on your program’s required courses, which are outlined in this guide.

Take a look at the specific course descriptions and learn more about the unique learning experience offered by these seminars.
