<p>Do seminars have heavier workloads? Is it recommended that someone takes 2 during one quarter?</p>

<p>Seminars are generally more intense and consist of a small group of students. Can't hide in the back of the class, and you have to actively take part in discussion. I wouldn't recommend two seminars in one quarter unless you have some familiarity with each subject being taught and are really interested in the subject matter. Focused reading, and more focused essays.</p>
