First Term Seminars

As part of their first semster course schedule, Curriculum I students entering Gustavus Adolphus College as first-year students enroll in one course designated FTS-1000: First Term Seminar. The FTS is a small, discussion-based course that introduces students to skills and habits central to the liberal arts: critical thinking, writing, speaking, and recognizing and exploring question of values.

First Year Students

Every fall semester, the Diversity Center staff collaborates with FTS professors to educate their students about the Center.
