First Year Advising Seminar Descriptions

The list of Fall 2024 seminars is available here.

In choosing a First Year Advising Seminar (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 first-year students. 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. Most seminars are 3 units of credit.

Students select their preferred advising option via our online advising application, which was due on June 14.
