Future Courses (TENTATIVE)

UCDC courses are taught by a mix of UC faculty and Washington experts. This is a tentative list of courses for upcoming term. Students should not assume that a class will be offered until the course is listed on the official courses page.

Note: Every student must enroll in a seminar. In addition, semester students are required to enroll in an elective course offered by UCDC. Quarter students have the option of enrolling in a UCDC elective but are not required to do so.
