ECS 101


ECS 101 courses serve as an extended transition experience for new students at Emory.

Aligned with the objectives of New Student Programs, ECS 101 courses are driven by the following goals for new students:

  • Emory Community Development: Students develop connections with faculty, staff, and peers and establish relationships that will support their academic and social goals
  • Personal Development: Students begin to take ownership of their individual learning experience and develop greater self understanding
  • Practical Knowledge and Skills: Students apply knowledge to navigate life as an Emory student
ECS 101

All first-year students enroll in a one-credit hour course called ECS 101 in their first semester. The course provides an introduction to the liberal arts at Emory and academic opportunities, introduces students to the Emory community, helps students understand College curriculum, requirements and policies, and offers strategies for managing time and health.


Transfer students can (and are encouraged to) enroll in specifically designated sections of ECS 101 in their first fall semester.
