University 101 Programs is an academic unit that fosters student success, development, and transitions into, through, and out of the University of South Carolina. Through our four academic courses (UNIV 101, 201, 290, and 401), students at all levels of University study engage in deep learning and exploration of focused topics in seminar settings.


The University of South Carolina's hallmark course, University 101, is a national model for first-year seminars and is consistently named by US News and World Report as a 'program to look for'. The four courses are team-taught by instructors drawn from departments across the Columbia and system campuses who are assisted by graduate students and undergraduate peer leaders, making these courses settings for active and collaborative teaching and learning.
