Additional Requirements (0 cr.)

As part of their General Education, students must complete two tagged requirements–Information Literacy and First Year Seminars.

Information Literacy

The campuswide general education curriculum requires students to demonstrate competence in modern information gathering and evaluation. 

Students will fulfill the Information Literacy requirement by taking one course tagged as an Information Literacy course OR by taking a stand-alone, credit bearing course, COAS-Q110 Introduction to Information Literacy (1cr.).  Courses with the Information Literacy tag vary by major and are indicated as meeting this requirement in the Schedule of Classes.

  • COAS-Q 110 Introduction to Information Literacy (1 cr.)

First Year Seminars

Students will fulfill the First Year Seminar (FYS) requirement by taking a course tagged as FYS.  First Year Seminars are specifically designed for incoming students. FYS is a tagged General Education requirement associated with a credit bearing course. Students should look for this FYS designation in the Schedule of Classes

In a small classroom setting, each student engages not only with the course’s material and instructor, but also with the entire campus and wider community. Each class has a peer mentor to help students with the transition to college life. Taught by award-winning, IU South Bend faculty, these classes attend to the specific academic needs of first-year students to ensure their success. 

Past seminars have focused on topics such as:

  • Making Sense of College Life
  • The Psychology of Parenting
  • Literary Hauntings
  • Biology and Society
  • Everybody's Irish
  • Humans and the Environment
  • Classical Music and Beyond
  • Happiness and the Good Life
  • Reacting to the Past: Sex Wars
  • Reacting to the Past: Media and Politics
  • Sustainable Future
  • Literacy, Social Media, and Active Citizenship
