Sophomore Seminars

Sophomore seminars bring together ideas, perspectives, and approaches that are not normally seen side by side in a given course or program. Embracing a range of intellectual perspectives, many of the seminars focus specifically on issues of social justice, identity, and difference. Limited to twenty students each, the seminars help students develop the knowledge, skills, and methods they need to progress toward more advanced learning in a discipline or field.

Faculty with an interest in offering a sophomore seminar may be eligible for course development funds if their proposed courses focus on social justice, identity, and difference.
