Freshman Seminars and House Seminars are offered under the general supervision of the Standing Committee on Freshman Seminars.
Freshman Seminars are designed to intensify the intellectual experience of incoming undergraduates by allowing them to work closely with faculty members on topics of mutual interest. Freshman seminars are graded SAT/UNS and may not be audited. Enrollment is limited to the first two terms of students who enter as freshmen.
House Seminars are limited enrollment courses sponsored by the individual residential Houses. They are open to undergraduates only, whether freshmen or upperclassmen, across all house affiliations. They are letter-graded, degree-credit courses that may be taken Pass/Fail. Enrollment requires the permission of the instructor.
Information on all current Seminars are listed in the FS Program application system. To access it during the application period, please go to "APPLY HERE" in the menu. Seminar listings are also available in My.Harvard. Information about the program is also available on the Undergraduate Advising website.
The Freshman Seminar Program catalog is published and mailed to freshmen in July. You may view or download the PDF by clicking on the image link or contact us to request a printed copy.
