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. First-Year Foundations Ones Programs 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. Newly admitted first-year students in the Faculty of Arts & Science, regardless of college affiliation, are eligible for admission to these programs.To see a list of the First-Year Foundations Ones courses, visit the Academic Calendar.

Most of my classes were 500 plus people in larger venues. So it was really cool to be able to work with students one-on-one and to know my professor as well. I was able to talk to her in office hours, and I felt like she actually knew who I was.
The program has provided me with exceptional knowledge and skills required for entering a career in public health policy and management.
This course made me fall in love with the city. Although I have lived in Toronto all my life, I feel like this course has changed my perspective and understanding of the city -- its social structures and historical past.
