The Proseminar: Centerpiece of the Graduate Certificate Program

The MEMS Proseminar, a comparative and/or interdisciplinary course, brings together faculty and students from a wide array of our constituent areas. No matter which edition of the proseminar taken, students are expected to produce a 20-page term paper; reading for the course is around 150 pages per week. 

Visiting lectures, colloquiua, and conferences are often coordinated to bear upon the topic of a given term’s proseminar. The course is offered under two or more departments (appropriate to the topic and disciplinary approach) and welcomes both Certificate students and other interested students.

Please see the links below for a taste of what MEMS Proseminars have offered in the past.
