CSM Freshman Transition Seminar II
Part II of the CSM Freshman Transition Seminar is the second half of a year-long course designed to assist first-year students with their transition to the UMass Boston community and position them for academic success. The second half of the course will focus on effective group work and communication, creating attainable long term goals, academic citizenship, and preparing students to take ownership of their academic career. Through class activities, assignments, workshops and discussion, students will learn what it means to work effectively as a group, communicate with one another and faculty members in a productive manner, and internalize the meaning of academic citizenship and their roles within CSM, UMass Boston, and the greater science community.
