As a cornerstone of our innovative undergraduate curriculum, UCLA offers up to 200 seminars annually through the Fiat Lux Freshman Seminar Program. These seminars provide students and faculty with small group settings to engage in meaningful discussions on a range of topics. Students receive one-unit of academic credit (Pass/No Pass) and faculty members from across campus have the opportunity to share with undergraduates their areas of intellectual passion and expertise. True to the University of California's motto, "Fiat Lux - Let There Be Light," these seminars illuminate the many pathways of discovery!
