University Seminar (US 1100) helps incoming freshmen transition to college life and is designed to be taken during a student’s first semester at Texas State. Its small class setting allows students to get to know each other as well as their faculty member. 

US 1100 connects new students to the campus and its resources, gets them involved in the university community, and supports PACE initiatives through related instruction, activities, and guidance. Through US 1100 career readiness projects, students learn about individual career interests, find organizations and activities related to their academic fields, and develop a plan that will lead to graduation and professional success.

The course is taught by a diverse group of professors, staff members, and administrators from departments across the Texas State campus. All have at least a master’s degree and lend their unique and varied perspectives to enrich each classroom. Distinct sections of the course may serve students with common interests. These are labeled in the Schedule of Classes.

University Seminar also offers US 2100, Introduction to Research and Discovery, a discipline-related overview of research procedures for first- and second-year students. Students who complete the course will gain a greater understanding of research opportunities and develop academic and professional skills that will prepare them for an undergraduate research experience.
