Institute for Core Studies

What We Do

The Institute for Core Studies (ICS) is designed to help first-year students in their academic transition to University life. As a unit, the three courses comprising the ICS – First Year Writing, Scientific Inquiry, and Discover New York – assist first-year students in becoming their own intellectual “gatekeepers” as they are exposed each day to large amounts of information from a wide variety of sources.
