Fall 2016 FYP Course Descriptions
Note to incoming First Year and transfer students taking the FYP course: The FYP course selections for Fall 2016 are complete. The courses will be different for Fall 2017, which are not complete at this time.

Click on the titles of the FYPs at the link above because course titles can either be wrongly interpreted or may not convey other important information that may impact your choice, i.e., spending lots of time in the outdoors or participating in the community as a requirement of a Community-Based Learning (CBL) component of that FYP course. Finally, to help us with your FYP course placement we encourage you to use the textbox at the end of the First-Year College Preference form to provide us with some detail about the FYP course choices that you made. Note: One FYP course entitled An Outdoor State of Mind requires you to participate in a pre-trip, which costs an additional $375.
