COVID-19: Essential Information

First Year Seminars

A first year seminar is a small discussion-based class specifically tailored to the needs of incoming students and designed to serve as their entry point to a liberal arts education at Middlebury. First year seminars are thematic courses that approach an area of intellectual inquiry from a perspective that attempts to make connections among a number of the traditional disciplines. The professor of the course also serves as academic advisor to the students until they choose a major. First year seminars, which are normally limited to a maximum enrollment of 15 students, are also writing-intensive courses.
