What is a Freshman Seminar?

Freshman Seminars are designed to intensify the intellectual experience of incoming students by allowing them to work closely with faculty members on topics of mutual interest. Enrollment in a Freshman Seminar is limited to your first two terms at Harvard and you are eligible to enroll in one seminar per term. Freshman Seminars are graded SAT/UNS and may not be audited.
