About Frosh Friendly Classes
Frosh-Friendly Courses allow students to explore a field of study early in their Stanford Careers, generally with minimal or no prerequisites or previous exposure. These include classes like IntroSems, Thinking Matters Courses, and introductory classes (like PSYCH 1) as well as some less obvious courses that can serve as a foundation or launching pad for study in a particular discipline. Taking a number of Frosh-Friendly Courses your first year can help you explore the wealth of options you have at Stanford and enable you to learn more about potential majors of interest. In addition, Frosh-Friendly courses may offer you opportunities to explore your Ways requirements and to learn more about the university and yourself.
