First Year Experience Course: UNV 101

First-year experience (FYE) courses are designed for new Miami students. FYE courses facilitate students' transition to college by introducing key information and skills needed to succeed and by offering opportunities to connect with faculty staff, and other students. The small classroom environment facilitates opportunities for open inquiry and individual advising, motivates students to actively participate through critical inquiry and contributing to classroom discussion, and identifies key campus resources to enhance academic and co-curricular success. Nearly all first-year students are registered for a first-year experience course.
