IN FOCUS Seminars

  • Crimson Education
  • 633 Clark St, Evanston, IL 60208, USA


IN FOCUS Seminars are designed to expose students to top Northwestern faculty highlighting themes relevant today. They do not have the time commitment or cost of a college credit course. These two-week noncredit seminars are structured like a college seminar course. Faculty will lead the seminar through discussion, readings and study, enabling a rich learning experience. Only College Prep students are able to enroll in the seminars, which will appear on your official Northwestern University transcript upon successful completion. If you wish to request credit at your high school for a seminar, discuss this with your counselor ahead of time since the acceptance of credit depends on your school's policy.
