Lower Division Seminar Programs

Collegium of University Teaching Fellows

The Collegium of University Teaching Fellows (CUTF) offers outstanding graduate students the opportunity to develop and teach lower division seminars in their area of expertise. These unique courses cover all areas, from the humanities to the life, physical, and social sciences. Undergraduate students take courses that are at the cutting edge of a discipline and benefit from a small-seminar environment. GE and honors credit is granted for most seminars, which are offered in Winter and Spring quarters only. Enrollment is limited. For further information, contact the Office of Instructional Development, 70 Powell Library Building, 310-206-8998.

Honors Collegium

The Honors Collegium, a series of interdisciplinary honors courses, offers a unique educational experience where students learn how to think critically and creatively and how to communicate effectively. Courses emphasize the breadth of an interdisciplinary approach to learning and focus on small classes and individual attention.

Fiat Lux Freshman Seminar Program

Fiat Lux seminars provide students with an opportunity to share ideas in class—an important academic skill that can be acquired only through practice. These 1-unit seminars, taught by distinguished faculty members from across UCLA, introduce freshman students to topics of intellectual importance and encourage them to participate in critical discussions with a small group of peers. The program takes its name from the motto of the University of California: Fiat Lux—Let There be Light! For details about seminar offerings each term, see the Schedule of Classes.
