FOUNDATIONS OF INTELLECTUAL LIFE 100 (UF 100)

Every new first-year student* takes a UF 100 class. Boise State offers a number of different UF 100 classes each semester, all investigating a separate topic (or theme). These theme-based classes are taught by faculty from departments across Boise State. Choose any theme that interests you. Regardless which theme you choose, by the end of the semester you will have built two core skills you need to succeed in college (and life): critical inquiry and oral communication.

UF 100 IS BOTH BIG AND SMALL

UF 100 courses have two parts. One is a BIG class taught in an auditorium-sized classroom: the UF 100 plenary (100 students). The other the other is a SMALL class taught in a different classroom: the UF 100 discussion section (25 students).  Even if you have a different teacher in your discussion section than in your plenary, everyone works together as one “teaching team.”
