Byrne Seminars

Byrne Seminars are small, one-credit courses offered only to first-year students at Rutgers-New Brunswick. These classes are taught by our world-renowned faculty, who come from departments and professional schools across the university. This program offers students the chance to experience the excitement of original research as faculty members share their curiosity, their intellectual passion, and how they develop new ideas and fields of knowledge. Some seminars take field trips, do hands-on research, or share a meal at the Rutgers Club. Browse seminars to see the fascinating options available in the Byrne Seminar program.

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.
