First-year seminar (FYSM) courses are small classes (usually with 30 students) designed to give students the opportunity to discuss and research topics of interest in a core subject area. Most university students are in their third or fourth year of study before they have the opportunity to take seminar courses. As a Carleton University Bachelor of Arts (BA) student, you are provided with this experience at the first-year level through enrolment in your First-Year Seminar.
All BA students are strongly encouraged to include a FYSM in their first 4.0 credits of registration. Students can only take one FYSM. To learn more about the BA, take a look at the Bachelor of Arts website and the Bachelor of Arts Viewbook.
