Value of a DU Experience
What can you expect from your experience at the University of Denver? Small classes and personal attention from faculty? Certainly. An unbeatable location with access to world-class mountain activities? No question. But what are the qualities that truly set DU apart from the rest? What will set you apart once you have graduated?
In today’s job market, it has become increasingly imperative to be able to say you’ve actually done something. At DU, we understand that “doing something” can take many different forms. Whether you study abroad, pursue an internship, lead a community organization, relate research to a business plan, or conduct important fieldwork under the tutelage of one of our renowned professors, DU uniquely and meaningfully prepares you to apply your education right away.

What are First-Year Seminars?
As an entering student, you will enroll for a 4-credit First-Year Seminar (FSEM 1111); completion of this course is one of the graduation requirements for all first-time, first-year students. It is the first quarter of a three-quarter First Year Inquiry and Writing sequence.
First-Year Seminars are designed to provide you with an in-depth academic experience that is both rigorous and engaging. You will develop the kinds of academic skills that prepare you for successful college work, including writing, critical reading and thinking, discussion, argument and debate. Faculty members have selected course topics about which they have particular expertise and enthusiasm. For you to be able to engage with faculty in the exploration of these topics is an extraordinary opportunity for academic and personal growth.
Note: First-year international students will register for a First-Year Seminar once they arrive on campus.
First-year international students who have been English Conditionally Admitted (ECA) should not register for a First-Year Seminar.
