At the heart of FSI are the two courses each student takes: "Ways of Knowing" and a course in quantitative reasoning. Both of these courses are taught by members of the Princeton faculty; they immerse students in common Princeton teaching and learning situations--from small seminars to large lectures--and give them an opportunity to enter scholarly conversations, collaborate to solve problems, and produce original research.
"Ways of Knowing" and the quantitative courses fulfill two separate University distribution area requirements (Epistemology and Cognition, and Quantitative Reasoning). Because they are full credit-bearing courses condensed into a summer session, the weekly work load approximates that of a regular four-course semester.
