Most of the courses offered in AFVS are limited to 10 or 12 students because many are “making” courses, meaning students create artworks or films. The optimal way to conduct these courses is in small groups. Some seminars are also limited-enrollment.
During the remote spring term of 2021, Shopping will take place virtually starting January 15 so that students will still be able to check out a number of courses prior to the start of term on January 25. Clear instructions about class admissions processes during Shopping Week will be listed on each AFVS course Canvas site.
The AFVS Department’s Critical Pedagogy Working Group established the following set of Values for Admitting Students into Limited Enrollment Classes, which were adopted by the department in December 2020. Please read more about our commitment to these values here.
Below are a few course highlights from the upcoming semester! Keep in mind that 2-digit classes welcome absolute beginners, and that no experience is necessary. For more detail and links to each course’s Canvas site, us the Course Search tool on https://my.harvard.edu.
