A Message From Provost Antonovics

I am thrilled to welcome the first cohort of Seventh College students in Fall 2020! This is a truly historic occasion and an exciting opportunity to shape the future of Seventh College and UC San Diego.

At Seventh College, our goal is to help students acquire the skills needed to confront the challenges posed by our changing planet. Our flexible general education curriculum allows students to choose from a wide range of exciting courses and encourages them to approach large-scale, global problems from an interdisciplinary perspective. Our students also gain real-world skills through numerous opportunities for experiential, project-based learning and research. Students graduate from Seventh College prepared for their future.

In addition, the faculty and staff at Seventh College are committed to building a fun, welcoming, and inclusive community that celebrates students' diverse backgrounds and experiences. 

Being a part of a brand-new college is incredibly exciting, and I can't wait to meet our first cohort of students!

Warmest wishes,
Provost Antonovics
