The Engagements are the highlight of the General Education Curriculum, a yearlong sequence of courses that introduce first-year students in the College to the liberal arts and sciences and celebrate learning.
Small, seminar-style courses that put you face-to-face with many of UVA's leading scholars and teachers, the Engagements are different from your typical first-year classes at UVA. They ask big questions, and invite you to think and talk about what you know and value. The Engagements, designed and taught by the College Fellows, emphasize individual and group projects and discussion in an engaging environment.
Only students in the Engagement Pathway will enroll in Engagements in their first year.
