Undergraduate Fellows Seminar

Due to renovations on campus, the Undergraduate Fellows Seminar is on hiatus for the Fall 2017 semester.

The Undergraduate Fellows Seminar includes 12 to 15 highly motivated students and four professors, each one bringing a different form of expertise to the study of important books that enrich student understanding of the arts, history, literature, business, politics, and life in general. The Seminar is a three-credit course that meets every week. The books chosen are ones that the faculty members do not already know and that do not come from their field of expertise.  This way the seminar has no “teacher” in the usual sense.  Students and faculty members read and learn together, and it is the student participants who lead the discussion.

Have questions about how the Seminars work? See FAQ or contact Prof. Christian Rubio.
