Classes on the Hill
Classes held on the Hill offer students an intimate atmosphere, group activities, and the opportunity to connect with other residents.
UCLA's Freshman Clusters are yearlong, team-taught, interdisciplinary courses available to entering freshmen students, most of which are taught on the Hill. The Clusters offer first-year students the opportunity to study complex topics in depth, with smaller class sizes and personal access to some of UCLA’s most prestigious faculty members. Students are part of learning communities of fellow students with similar interests, which helps in the transition to college. Clusters focus on big topics of timely importance such as the global environment, or interracial dynamics.
The Fiat Lux program is a collection of one-unit (pass/no-pass) seminars spanning the rich variety of disciplines at UCLA, several of which are taught by Faculty-in-Residence and some are held on the Hill. Designed primarily for first-year students, these seminars provide an opportunity for undergraduates to learn about our world class faculty’s intellectual passions and expertise. Although listed under the Honors program, all students are invited to participate.
