The Senior Seminar Program was launched in fall 2006 as an additional venue to enhance the undergraduate student experience at UC San Diego. By design, the small informal class setting promotes intellectual discussions with faculty, and fosters an ideal learning environment for polishing critical thinking and analytical skills.

Senior Seminars are designated by the course number 192 (e.g., Poli Sci 192), are graded Pass/Not Pass, and carry one unit of credit. A department stamp is required prior to enrollment and is obtained by contacting the department or program offering the seminar. Prerequisites vary by seminar. Students are highly encouraged to incorporate Senior Seminars into their upper-division studies at UC San Diego.

Please visit the Senior Seminar Program website at for a description of seminars currently offered. This site also contains useful information such as enrollment procedures and additional program details. Questions about a specific Senior Seminar should be directed to the department offering the seminar.
