First-Year Odyssey Seminars

The First-Year Odyssey Seminar program invites faculty to offer seminars beginning fall 2011. These seminars will allow faculty to teach a seminar on a topic that interests them and is related to their area of scholarship. This is an opportunity to engage first-year students in the unique academic culture the university offers. First-Year Odyssey Seminars will be one credit-hour, graded seminars taught by faculty in small sections of approximately 15-18 students. FYOS 1001 will be offered beginning in fall 2011 to all incoming first-year students at UGA.
