Colloquia


Colloquia are designed to give students at the beginning of their college careers the opportunity to enroll in small courses which explore specific themes or texts in an interdisciplinary manner. These seminar-style courses offer a uniquely personal setting for student-faculty and student-student interactions. Colloquia provide an opportunity to sharpen analytical skills, to deal clearly with abstract concepts, and to improve writing and oral skills.

Enrollment in each colloquium is generally limited to about 15 students, with 10 places reserved for first-year students and five places for second-year students. Students may elect only ONE colloquium per year. Enrollment in some colloquia is limited to first-year students only. The following is a partial listing of the colloquia that will be available in 2007-2008. (Other small classes limited exclusively to first-year students are found in the “First-Year Seminar Program” section of this catalog.)
