COLL 150: First-Year Experience

In your COLL 150 course, you'll engage in deep readings and group discussions of texts, data, or methods of inquiry. These are small classes that focus on a more narrow topic within a discipline.

You will learn methods of scholarly research and will practice and strengthen your writing skills. As you become more aware of the power of academic writing to clearly and persuasively communicate your ideas, you'll experience how the process of writing includes revision and self-editing. {{youtube:small:right|M-CXIY8qG3M, COLL 150: Emerging Diseases}}

Through your work in this course and others across the curriculum, you'll become more skilled at writing prose that communicates complex ideas in your own lively, intelligent, and interesting voice.

You'll take one COLL 150 course in your first year, with a COLL 100 course in the other semester. The order doesn't matter.
