The TIDES Program (Tulane InterDisciplinary Experience Seminars) is Tulane University's distinctive seminar program for all first year students at Tulane. TIDES are designed to provide quality interactions with some of our finest faculty, active learning, intellectual challenges, social co-curricular activities and the opportunity to meet fellow students with similar interests. Your TIDES experience will involve learning by interaction and be driven by intellectual curiosity and the desire to explore new opportunities. With over 80 topics, you are sure to find a TIDES class that appeals to you.

Participating in a TIDES class will help you find your special place within the Tulane community. Through the guest speakers and activities associated with your class, you may meet additional faculty and staff from across the University as well as New Orleans community members who can offer a local, real-world perspective on your TIDES topic. As you meet interesting people, learn about helpful University resources and participate in a variety of activities, you will be exposed to many things that will enrich your first semester at the University and in the city of New Orleans.
