MUH 125 : FIRST YEAR SEMINAR
First-Year Seminars constitutes a common and academically significant experience in a student’s first year at Converse University. All incoming first-year students are required to take a 3-credit hour FYS in the fall semester, choosing from a variety of discipline specific topics. Each FYS carries the corresponding departmental prefix, but with the common course number (except for designated honors sections). Each FYS course is designed to have no more than 18 students, and counts in some designated category of the General Education Program. Strong writing and speaking components are required elements of the course. For music majors the First Year Seminar will be Music History I: An Introduction to the study of music history, including terminology, acoustics and research skills. The course will also include the development of Western music from Antiquity through 1400.
