How do the Byrne Seminars Work?
These seminars are small, one-credit courses, limited to 20 students. Seminars typically meet for 10 weeks, starting in the first week of each semester. The seminars are graded Pass/No Credit, and have no formal exams. Students may register for a one-credit seminar in addition to the 12-15 credit standard course-load; the seminars are not meant to compete with other classes.
