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 Spring 2015 each of the following core courses is partnered with a section of FYS 1100 (First-Year Seminar):
  • ARTS 1100
  • BIO 1107/Lab
  • CRJU 2010
  • ENGL 1101
  • ENGL 1102
  • GEOG 1100
  • HIST 1111
  • POLS 1100
  • PSYC 1101

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.
