University Seminars

University Seminars (USEM) are designed to give first-year students the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills and explore new ideas in an environment that encourages interactive learning and intensive discussion. The seminars are based on ideas that have changed the way we think about our relation to the world around us. The seminars are given by prominent faculty in departments and schools across the University, carry two hours of credit, and are restricted to first-year students during initial course enrollment. If space is available, second-, third- and fourth-year students may enroll using a Course Action Form. Refer to the Course Offering Directory for a list of specific offerings each semester.
