Honors First-Year Seminars (FYS)
First Year Seminars (FYS) are introductory courses in the Honors Program curriculum. Most incoming Honors Program students will participate in one of these highly recommended seminars during their first semester at Baylor. These small classes typically enroll 15-18 students, and they allow enrollees and professors to explore the theme of the course through reading, discussion, research, and writing. The seminars often substitute for other required courses via petitions that are arranged through the Honors Program office.
