Advising: Freshman Advising Seminar Descriptions

This section provides you with access to descriptions of the freshman advising seminars that will be offered during the 2016-2017 academic year.

In choosing a FAS, try not to focus too sharply on what you think your major might be. Many MIT students find themselves as seniors following very different paths than they anticipated when they were freshmen. Keep your mind open to other possibilities.

Seminars are one way to explore some of MIT’s richness right at the beginning of your college career, and are also a chance to try out a topic you might be interested in pursuing later in more depth. Seminars descriptions are organized alphabetically by seminar title; A-J seminars and K-Z seminars.
