First Year Foundations

All seven colleges in the Faculty of Arts & Science and the Munk School of Global Affairs offer distinctive first-year programs that build community, foster critical thinking and writing skills and develop intellectual independence. The Ones enable you to explore your interests, engage with community, and experience the extraordinary in a small seminar setting.

The Ones typically combine one or more small-group, theme-based courses with co-curricular events (e.g. guest lectures) and experiential learning opportunities. All first-year, full-time students in the Faculty of Arts & Science, regardless of college affiliation, are eligible for admission to these programs.

If you have received an offer of admission to a Ones Program, you can accept the offer.
