This Seminar module has two main class components, ARCH and ARCH-TALK.

  • The ARCH class is conducted in traditional seminar style. Students pick a topic and present about it in class. We then discuss its content.
  • ARCH-TALK is a multimedia-based class. Every session we watch a video and discuss it in class. For more information see

ARCH and ARCH-TALK are run as a block from 9am – noon on Monday morning. For past ARCH seminar impressions see
