Fiat Lux Freshman Seminar Program



UCLA Centennial Seminars
In the year 2019, UCLA will be celebrating its Centennial Anniversary, marking one hundred years since our university’s founding. As we approach this impressive milestone, I would like to use Fiat Lux seminars as a forum to showcase some of the great accomplishments of our university to help our students reflect on the rich history and contributions so many have made to the betterment of humanity through research, teaching, and service.

Seminar Proposals
Help us reach our goal of offering 100 Centennial seminars by 2019! We encourage faculty to develop and teach seminars that fit the spirit of UCLA’s Centennial. If finding a topic is challenging, Beserat Hagos, Director of the Fiat Lux Program, would be happy to meet with you and brainstorm different topics that would fit your area of expertise.

Thank you for your consideration and for your continuous commitment that helped us enhance the Fiat Lux program over the past sixteen years.

This quarter, UCLA's Newsroom put the spotlight is on Professor Teo Ruiz’s History 19 UCLA Centennial Initiative: UCLA in LA. Our Fiat Lux team followed him to Downtown LA and here’s just a peak into the experience. If your course has interactive elements and/or field trips and you would like your seminar highlighted, please contact Fiat Lux Administration.
