|FYS Course Objectives||
FYS is the Mercer course, the class that cultivates the critical thinking and argumentative writing skills and the self-awareness and social engagement values that are essential to the Mercer experience.
The guides on this site explain the elements of writing and thinking that the course attempts to develop in each student. After two semesters of FYS, you should be able to think and to write, not only to communicate or to explain, but also to understand and to provoke.
