The 2012-2013 academic calendar marks the fifth year of the University Seminar, a program initiated by the Office of the Provost to further Tufts’ goal to prepare leaders with a rich and textured understanding of the world in all its complexity and diversity. Major aims of the University Seminar are to enhance the interface between research and teaching, to develop new research questions through trans-disciplinary approaches to a global issue, and to develop innovative teaching and learning methods that can be applied to the larger Tufts community and to its existing and emerging programs.
Generally, University Seminar courses are offered two times, each in a different academic year.
