Collegium Seminars

UW Collegium Seminars are discussion-based seminars designed to introduce first year students to the excitement of ideas and the richness of academic discovery.

Students in these seminars learn “shoulder-to-shoulder” with the UW’s best faculty, exploring big ideas, engaging in deep inquiry and developing a sense of community with a small group of students around a shared area of interest. These seminars are an excellent introduction to the intellectual world of the University, and a welcoming environment for students still new to the campus. Grading is credit/no credit.
