These classes explore a wide range of topics, and are open only to first-year students. They give you an intellectual doorway to Hope College in an interdisciplinary context. The faculty focus on active learning and college-level learning in the liberal arts. Students read primary texts, do reflective writing, discuss in small groups and create presentations for the class. Your teacher for your seminar will also be your advisor, so it is a great way to quickly get to know your advisor and a small group of friends. Expect great things.
