Tompkins Cortland Community College

FSS 131 - Self and World

"Welcome students! This class will help you 1) create strong relationships with your teachers and peers; 2) figure out how to “do college” successfully; 3) discover how to apply your experiences, interests, and strengths to your learning; and 4) explore academic majors and career possibilities that match your interests. Unlike many classes you have taken in the past, where you job was to learn the “material” the teacher taught, this class is about learning from your own and your classmates’ experiences. You will be thinking deeply, reading actively, and writing a lot, but what you think, read, and write about will be relevant to you. You’ll work hard, and you’ll have fun. Modest fee for aptitude testing. Prerequisites: Prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 99 and RDNG 99 if required by placement testing. 3 Cr. (3 Lec.)
