FYE Courses

Expect this to be an exciting and challenging course. Participation in a 2-unit course is the equivalent to 2 hours of classroom time weekly (lecture, discussion section) and 4 hours of outside preparation weekly (reading, thinking, investigating, reflecting, projects). Expect this course to challenge you in ways different from traditional academic environments (e.g. seeking out a faculty mentor, exploring career opportunities within your major).

Your First Year Experience (FYE) or Transfer Year Experience (TYE) course is designed to help you make a successful transition to UC San Diego, both academically and personally. Our team of faculty, staff, and Discussion Leaders believe in a holistic approach to fostering student development. We hope to present a number of resources (e.g. TRELS) and success strategies (e.g. proactive time management, successful goal setting) that will support a happy and productive UC San Diego and college experience.
