Frosh-Friendly Courses

Main content start

Interested in checking out courses in a specific area, but unsure where to start? Frosh-Friendly Courses are selected by their departments as excellent opportunities for students to learn more about a field, department, or program.  These courses are intended for beginners, and have few (if any) prerequisites. And while we call them "frosh-friendly," they are also great ways for sophomores, juniors, and even seniors to start learning about a new field!

Courses by Quarter

You can also find Frosh-Friendly courses by typing the special tag VPUE::cc-ff directly in the search bar of ExploreCourses.

Please note that ExploreCourses is updated each year around mid-August.  If you don't yet see the upcoming year's list of Frosh-Friendly courses at the links above, be sure to check back again later!
