Freshman Seminars

Grand Challenge Freshman Seminars engage first-year students in complex issues facing the world and introduce the importance of interdisciplinary approaches. These seminars create space for first-year students to dig into the complexity of grand challenges while connecting with a faculty member and a small group of students from different colleges and majors. GCC Freshman Seminars also prepare students to enroll in Grand Challenge Curriculum courses, where many of the issues studied and strategies learned will be further developed.
