Preceptor Courses

Are you looking for an introduction to the Oswego campus and the resources it offers? Would you like to take a stimulating class related to an academic area of interest? In addition to learning about the subject area, you learn more about life on campus through our preceptor courses.

A Preceptor Course is an introductory class limited in size to no more than 19 students. These courses, offered in several areas of study, allow students to receive individual attention from the professor and enjoy solid group interaction. Preceptor classes have the same academic content as non-preceptor sections, but first-year students gain the added advantage of having a faculty member teach academic responsibilities and values while increasing awareness of the opportunities offered on campus. Together with classmates and professors, preceptor students take part in cultural activities on campus and in the community. Many classes have a peer educator on the team to help guide students toward resources on campus to help them be successful.
