Residential College Seminars

The Residential College Seminar program, instituted in 1968, is devoted to the development of innovative courses that fall outside departmental structures. Courses arise through the joint initiative of students and members of the faculty who are fellows of the residential colleges. The instructors for the seminar program are drawn from the University community and from the region, including individuals outside academic life, such as writers, artists, participants in government and the public sector, and experts from the arts and the media.

Information about residential college seminars for the fall term can be found on the program’s website in late summer. This site also contains course descriptions, readings, and course requirements.

Different rosters of Residential College Seminars are offered in the fall and in the spring terms.  Application information is available via the link listed above. Lists of admitted students will be posted on the website.
