Courses numbered 100 to 299 = lower-division; 300 to 499 = upper-division; 500 to 799 = undergraduate/graduate.

FYHP 102.  First-Year Seminar - Health Professions   (3).

The First-Year Seminar course is an introduction to the university as well as to general education at Wichita State University. Expect to explore a broad topic from a variety of different disciplinary perspectives as well as join a community of academic learners whose responsibility it is to ask questions, explore and exchange ideas, and become effective critical thinkers. Additionally, students have the opportunity to engage with fellow students and WSU faculty and staff by participating in activities aimed to further connect them to WSU. Students enroll in the lettered courses (e.g. 102A, 102B) with specific topics in the titles rather than in this root course.

FYHP 102E.  First-Year Seminar: Infections, Emerging Superbugs, Biowarfare and Outbreaks   (3).

General education math and natural sciences course. A first-year seminar course examining unique and peculiar infections categorized by different body systems including: the brain, eyes, nose, ears, lungs, heart, kidneys/reproductive system, gastrointestinal tract, bones and skin. Students are exposed to scientific literature and asked to review and critically reflect on different articles. In addition to learning different types of infections, the emergence of superbugs and their potential impact on society as well as historical examples of biological warfare are discussed. Students also evaluate pandemics, epidemics, outbreaks and endemics by evaluating historical and current examples and their impact on society. First-Year Seminars do not meet a divisional requirement in the pre-Fall 2024 WSU General Education program, and can only be used in Bucket 7 for General Education starting Fall 2024.
