Stanford Introductory Studies offers courses taught by faculty from across the seven Schools of the University. Some of these courses satisfy University Requirements (IHUM, GER, and the Writing and Rhetoric Requirement) while others provide seminar opportunities for first- and second-year students. Special residential programs such as Structured Liberal Education and September Studies (Sophomore College, Arts Intensive, and Bing Honors College) expand SIS curricular opportunities for students. The Hume Writing Center, which manages writing services such as tutorials and workshops for all students, is also part of SIS.
