First-Year Survey is Still Live

Frosh and first-year transfers: If you haven’t taken the survey yet, please check your Stanford email for your personal survey invitation from VPUE sent May 17. Your feedback helps improve undergraduate programs and enters you in a $50 gift card drawing.

One-Unit Wonders and Terrific Twos

Main content start

There are many courses at Stanford that are only one or two units (representing approximately 3-6 hours of work per week). These courses include “introduction to the field” courses, speaker-series courses, and activity courses. They offer a unique way to explore an area of interest and round out your schedule with an extra unit or two! 

Courses By Quarter

You can also find Frosh-Friendly courses by typing the special tag VPUE::cc-wonders directly in the search bar of ExploreCourses.

This list is not exhaustive-- be sure to explore 1 and 2 unit opportunities in Wellness, Outdoor Education and Physical Education as well!
