How much work are the seminars?
The First Year Seminars are real courses, so you’ll be expected to do reading, some writing, and possibly even research. But professors know these classes are only one credit and they lessen the work accordingly. In general, each week you should expect no more than two hours of work outside of class for every hour spent in class.
How are the seminars graded?
Each professor determines how the grades of their course will be determined. Seminars listed under ARTSSCI 1137 are letter graded; those listed under ARTSSCI 1138 are graded satisfactory/unsatisfactory.
