Aiming to solve the contradiction between the traditional test oriented education in high schools and innovation education in universities, the applied chemistry major in Northwest A & F University has launched a freshman seminar course to cultivate students' innovation consciousness, innovation ability, and the spirit of exploration and criticism. The teaching contents include the introduction of the applied chemistry discipline and nine academic fields of applied chemistry. The course is designed mainly for small class discussion between students and the teacher. This paper introduces the teaching model, teaching content, exam model and teaching effect, which will provide a new idea in the freshman seminar course of related majors.

Key words: Freshman seminar course, Applied chemistry, Cultivation of innovative talents, Teaching contents, Exam model
