Seminars and Pop-Up Courses

USD’s Humanities Center features short courses on topics of current interest that align with the Center’s mission and goals. Interdisciplinary courses that connect the humanities to other areas of study are especially encouraged. Faculty typically offer these courses in a seminar format to small groups of 12 to 20 students.

Most Humanities Center courses are offered for 1 unit on a P/F only basis, but other options are possible. Humanities Center seminar classes usually are scheduled at least six months in advance. Pop-up courses on especially timely topics may be offered with much shorter lead times.

Guidelines for Humanities Center seminar and pop-up courses are available for download. Questions should be sent to Ron Kaufmann at kaufmann@sandiego.edu.
