KSAS Spotlight

Every first-year student at Johns Hopkins enrolls in a First-Year Seminar (FYS) of their choice. These small, intimate, conversation-focused classes cross academic disciplines, and help students build connections that will serve them for the next four years. Each seminar is unique to the faculty teaching it, but all are discussion-based with embedded experiential learning.
