1) The FYE seminars are stand-alone seminars, not linked to a GUR course as are the FIGs.
2) While the FIGs are taught by faculty and qualified staff, the FYE seminars are taught only be full-time faculty.
3) FYE seminars are offered in the fall, winter, and spring quarters, whereas the FIGs are available only in the fall of each year.
4) The FYE program does not have a mission statement that brings together a unified purpose for all the FYE seminars. Rather, each seminar is more closely aligned with disciplinary and / or departmental goals.
