An Introduction to Academics First Year Seminar Connect With a Faculty Member

An important part of the first-year experience at McDaniel is the First Year Seminar course. As part of the First Year Program at McDaniel, all first-year students take one First Year Seminar course during their first semester at McDaniel College. First Year Seminars are innovative topical and thematic courses on a range of subjects suitable for first-year students that provide an introduction to the liberal arts and an academic transition to college. 

Campus will soon be bustling with returning students! Ways to Connect and Stay Busy More events to look forward to!
