Privacy: Who’s Watching Whom and Why?
Each eSeminar term revolves around a central theme. Students in this program select their seminar and explore the theme through the lens of that seminar’s particular academic discipline.
What is eSeminars?
eSeminars is an exciting, discussion-based distance learning program that includes a focus on collaboration and exploration of ideas. eSeminars is interdisciplinary in nature and students are able to engage with material, topics, and fellow students from other seminars. Students in eSeminars spend four to six hours a week on coursework and seminar meetings.
How does the theme work?
The theme is an interdisciplinary focal point for the program and serves as a central topic of study. Students approach the theme from the perspective of a specific academic discipline.

How do students connect?
Students connect to their TIP instructor, classmates, and course materials in three ways:
- A Gmail, AOL, or Yahoo email account.

When do students meet?
Students have weekly meetings with their instructor and classmates. Each seminar has two meeting options: Sundays at 2 p.m. or Thursdays at 8 p.m. Students are only required to attend one weekly meeting and can choose either option, or choose to attend both. The content in each meeting is the same.
