UA 5 - First-Year Success Seminar

1 credit
UA 005 is designed to help first-year students understand and manage their coursework, personal responsibilities, and extracurricular activities to help them to become a successful student artist at UArts. In the seminar, students will develop their own answers to questions such as “What does it mean to be an artist?,” “What are my goals?” and “How do you live and work successfully within a community of artists?” Students will investigate, discuss, and learn to implement the learning and creative strategies of successful emerging artists. Elements covered in the seminar include, but are not limited to, creative practice, critical thinking development, study and life skills, and time management. Assigned readings, discussion topics, reflective and research-oriented writing assignments, and independent and collaborative projects will be used to inspire and strengthen students and to build on what they are learning in their other courses.

Student must have completed the 1st semester of their Freshman year (15 credits).
