First Class Learning Community


First Class is a learning community that links a first year seminar course with one of a number of core courses. These linked classes are closely related and the same students will take both courses, often have the same professor for their seminar course and core course. 

For Fall 2014, each of the following core courses is partnered with a section of FYS 1100 (First-Year Seminar):
  • ANTH 1102
  • ARTS 1100
  • BIO 1107/Lab
  • CHEM 1211/Lab
  • CRJU 2010
  • ECON 1101
  • ENGL 1101
  • GEOG 1100
  • HIST 1111
  • HIST 1112
  • MATH 1001
  • POLS 1100
  • POLS 1200
  • PSYC 1101
  • THEA 1100

Students will request their preferences for the learning community as they register for Navigate Armstrong.  All first-time, full-time first-year students starting at Armstrong with less than 30 credit hours are required to take First Class in their first full semester.
