Starting fall 2014, all incoming freshmen will be required to enroll in a signature course of their choice.

The signature courses range in a variety of topics and gives freshmen a feel for ASU and the community.

According to the ASU signature course website, the courses will create a classroom environment where first-year students can interact with faculty. The topics up for discussion will pose mutual interest and engage in shared inquiry with the practice of reasoning.

There are 42 signature courses for the fall. Each class is small in size to further the instructor and student connection, according to the website.

Signature courses may fall into any of the 50 categories listed of the signature courses webpage.

Courses include "Choosing a STEM career," "Lights, Camera, Action: Teach!" and "The Many Faces of College Freshmen."

Each course is taught by a different faculty or staff member on campus. According to the ASU signature courses website, each course will allow first-year students to interact with their professors and classmates, investigate contemporary or interdisciplinary issues, or simply explore a major.

The courses will hit five areas: writing, oral communication, information literacy, university resources and lecture series.

Freshmen should register for a signature course, they can search the courses under General Studies 1181.
