Honors First-Year Seminars

All students enroll in an honors first-year seminar during their initial semester. The seminar serves as an introduction to the honors program, the resources offered by the University of Kansas, and an academic area of interest.

While closely examining a specific topic, students develop skills in research, reading, writing, and in-depth discussion. The instructor of the seminar serves as the students' faculty mentor.
