The First-Year Program

Welcome to the First-Year Program website!

Welcome to the First-Year Program! We offer two essential parts of the Liberal Studies Core that all students pursuing a degree at DePaul must take: the Chicago Quarter and Focal Point Seminar.

Course topics range from anything about Chicago to popular culture, literature, film, and more. Choose from courses about the Chicago Cubs, Harry Potter, Devil in the White City, Chicago's architecture, and much more.  Keep an eye out for what is offered each quarter!​​​​​​​​​
