When, where, and how often do freshman seminars meet?

Freshman Seminars meet once a week for 2-3 hours. Ladder and tenured FAS faculty may not schedule a course meeting on Tuesday afternoons between 4-5:30 PM, the time designated for faculty meetings. Seminars may meet in department rooms by agreement or our office will request a room from the Harvard Classrooms Office.

According to FAS schedule change legislation, these guidelines must be followed when choosing a meeting time: officially seminars must begin on the hour (or may start 45 mins past the hour) and must finish by 15 minutes before the start of the next time block for transferring between classes. For example, a seminar could be scheduled at 12:00-2:00 for only a 2-hour meeting time within the 12:00-2:45 time slot, but a class may meet longer than 2 hours within the time block. Instructors may arrange with students for a compatible meeting time within the time block.

9:00-11:45 or if you prefer to start a bit later, 9:45-11:45
12:00-2:45 or 12:45-2:45
3:00-5:45 or 3:45-5:45
