Sophomore Seminars and L&S Breadth

Sophomore seminars (84s) offered after fall 2011 will not satisfy breadth requirements in Letters and Science for programmatic reasons. The sophomore seminars listed below may be used to satisfy L&S breadth requirements, because they were assigned breadth before the end of fall 2011 and offered through that semester. If the seminars on this list are offered again after fall 2011, they may not be used to satisfy L&S breadth requirements.
