First-Year Seminar

  • First-Year Seminar (UNI 101) is a highly interactive course which fosters a sense of community, with no more than 25 first-year students per class. It offers an environment conducive to academic and personal development.
  • First-Year Seminar is a requirement to graduate and should be taken in the first semester at UNCW.
  • If you sign up for Orientation by May 1, 2015, you can sign up for a First Year Seminar during Early Registration from May 18, 2015 at 10:00am through May 22, 2015 at 5:00pm.

Learning Links

    Click here for options for Learning Links in Fall 2015.

    Learning linked courses provide an opportunity for students to become a part of a cohort group of 20-25 students enrolled in the same First-Year Seminar and a University Studies course.

    These students also share the same academic advisor. This connection encourages a deeper understanding of the material they are learning in both courses, with an increased sense of community while completing two University Studies requirements.

    To register for a Learning Link, students must click on SIGN UP FOR A LEARNING LINK IN SEANET or input both CRN (Course Registration Numbers) for the two courses at the same time in SeaNet.
