Group Seminars

Overview

Group Seminars (GSems) are unique to the Graduate Group. Taught by two or more faculty members from different departments, they model interdisciplinary thinking and research and produce memorable intellectual encounters. One or two GSems are offered each year. Students in the Group are required to take at least one, but many take more.
