Weekly Scholar Seminars

Interdisciplinary seminars are held every Tuesdays at noon for one hour throughout each fall and spring semester. The seminars are often team taught by faculty from Lycoming and other colleges and universities as well as business and thought leaders from a variety of fields. The topics and speakers are selected by the Scholars Council.

Each seminar carries one credit, for which no additional tuition is required. Grades are "A" or "F"; however students who are not participating satisfactorily will be encouraged to withdraw rather than receive an "F." The seminars include lectures, small group discussions, presentations by scholars, and assigned readings.

Past seminar topics have included: Leonardo’s World, “Friends, Romans, Countrymen,” Innovations of the Twentieth Century, Pirates!, War, The American Experience, Wonder, The Maya, “Meat: It’s What’s for Scholars,” Sanitation, Thinking About Thinking, Mass Incarceration and Created Equal.
