Collins Seminars

Freshmen and sophomores living at Collins take one Collins seminar a year (3 credits). Because enrollment is limited to twenty students, these seminars offer you an exciting opportunity to interact closely with an instructor and your peers. Seminars are chosen by the student members of the Board of Educational Programming and approved by the Collins Faculty Curriculum Committee.

Collins seminars are taught by instructors from across the university and typically satisfy distributional requirements as well as GenEd credit. A number of IU’s most popular courses (like “The Music of the Beatles”) were first offered as Collins seminars. Summer classes and visiting scholar/artist classes also satisfy the Collins seminar requirement.
